Strange Beauty Opens Oct. 12 at Museum of Photographic Arts

Sinister-perfection---mopaBeauty is in the eye of the beholder with Rudd Van Empel’s Strange Beauty exhibit, opening this Friday.

Rudd Van Empel’s digitally enhanced photo collages present a vision of perfect beauty that’s just a little bit… off. Strange Beauty, on view at the Museum of Photographic Arts this fall, marks the Dutch artist’s first American solo exhibition, with more than 40 captivating works created by blending separately photographed images of wide-eyed models, often children, and lush natural details that together create an idyllic yet subtly sinister effect. Oct. 12-Feb. 1, 2013. Museum of Photographic Arts, 1649 El Prado, Balboa Park. 619.238.7559. mopa.org
