November 8 - December 8, 2013
Opening Preview: Thursday, November 7, 2013
NEW YORK, Nov 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Opening this Fall at 558 Gallery in Chelsea, Size Does Matter features Danish photographer Kenneth Willardt's debut solo exhibition. The show features large-scale works in bold colors of Wilhelmina plus-size supermodel Robyn Lawley posing with a menagerie of creatures large and small. The images juxtapose size, shape and color to explore concepts of femininity, power and the natural world.
"There is no need to worry about mere size. We do not necessarily respect a fat man more than a thin man. Sir Isaac was very much smaller than a hippopotamus, but we do not on that account value him less".
-- Bertrand Russel
For the past decade Kenneth has shot a wide array of actors, musicians and high-profile models -from Lady Gaga and Beyonce, to Claudia Schiffer and Julianne Moore- for both editorial and international advertising campaigns. He is perhaps best known for his shoots of L'Oreal and Maybelline global spokes models that have been critical in worldwide rebranding these beauty giants. Size Does Matter is the first presentation of his non-commercial work.
The show will also feature an interactive experience of augmented reality. Whereby downloading the 4D Application onto your mobile device visitors will be able to scan the 4D QR codes featured throughout the gallery and experience the artwork in a new and exciting style that's never before been seen.

ABOUT ROBYN LAWLEY
Robyn started modeling in her native Australia while in her early teens. She started out a size 6 but by her late teens it was obvious that Robyn's natural body shape was not that small and despite editing and exercising she was just not going to be able to maintain that size and be healthy. Chelsea Bonner, Director of Bella model management immediately recognized Robyn's potential as a model who could easily become one of the most sought after plus models in the world. Over the next two years Robyn worked for Australia's most influential fashion magazines and catalogue clients, winning a coveted contract with Autograph clothing becoming the youngest and highest paid plus model ever signed to a fashion label in Australia 2009. After careful consideration as to who would best represent Robyn in the overseas market Bella placed Robyn with the amazing team at Wilhelmina Models.
