OTHER NOTES:
The artistic process of Michael Zavros is immaculate. His paintings are carefully and meticulously rendered that they are left with no evidence of a brush. Originally taking inspiration from the pages of GQ magazine and other advertising material, Zavros continues to explore notions of decadence and desire. In Red/Blue 2001 he portrays two males in slick and luxurious suits, perfectly balanced - their poses reminiscent of a high-end photoshoot.

ESSAY:
'Zavros is an aesthete: he paints beautiful things beautifully. His subject include fairytale palaces, gardens and follies: upmarket men's fashion, luxury cars and jewellery; Lipizzaner dressage horses, Japanese pedigree onagadori chickens and pretty boys. Zavros's subjects seem interchangeable; they are analogous to one another. For instance, his businessmen in bespoke suits and shiny shoes echo his over bred chickens with their extravagant, impractical tails. His subject's quality and classiness is also mirrored in his impeccable, refined, photo-realistic rendering of them.

It is often said that Zavros's subject is beauty itself, but it is, more generally, symbols of status. His canon of beauty is aspirational - keyed to notions of privilege, tradition and the faux-aristocratic taste of luxury brands. Zavros's work speaks to a desire for status, and therefore also to our fear of not having it - what television-philosopher Alain de Botton famously called "status anxiety". Consequently, Zavros has become a shibboleth. People either love him or loathe him, admire him or resent him. Those who love him think his work epitomises precisely what art should be (which is what they have or want, like and are); those who loathe him think it is everything art should not be (class, ideology). The strength and clarity of Zavros's project lies precisely in his ability to polarise his audience. By picking subjects that seem prime candidates for deconstruction and critique but not deconstructing or critiquing them, Zavros foregrounds and flaunts his lack of criticality.'1

ESSAY:
This reflection on the manipulation of genetics appears ... most powerfully in a work such as White onagadori, which depicts the extraordinary bird bred from mutations of long tail Japanese breeds for the sole purpose of achieving a beautiful but hopelessly impractical long train of tail feathers. Technique and subject mirror each other as Zavros' drawing strips away contextual detail, for that is not what lovers of this ornamental bird wish to see, and plays instead with the positive and negative decorative qualities of white on black, the languidly curling lines reminiscent of the decadent Art Nouveau style. Led out only for display, the onagadori exists to give tangible worldly form to the Phoenix, that mythical creature of the imagination. In reality this flightless bird must be confined permanently in a cage to protect the trailing feathers, its chain and its glory.1
