Hajime Sorayama - Gynoid (3)

H.R Giger BioMechanoid

A tentatively posed model is airbrushed into another part of the “Gynoid” Series, by Hajime Sorayama. The Gynoids are very much the same concept harvested by H.R.Giger with his BioMechanoids; that is to say they’re both a fusion of machine and the female form, but the similarity pretty much stops there.

Sorayama’s work is sweetness and light, he uses the body hugging chrome prosthetic to re-enforce softcore/pin-up titillation, machine enhanced but very much human. Giger’s approach is the reverse, sinister machine like humanoids – alien (literally) – the example shown is one his earlier works, a pre-airbrush piece from around 1970.

H.R. Giger - Motorscape

An example of Swiss Artists H.R Giger’s earlier work, from around 1970, a surreal mechanical landscape I believe its a screen print predating his adoption of the Airbrush by a couple of years. I like this because it’s sinister without the full-on grotesque Giger is famous for – Apologies the image isn’t of the best quality…
