\n

Nicholas Robinson Gallery is pleased to announce t he second exhibition in its new lower gallery exhibition

\n

space with the exhibition GIVING FACE Portraits for a New Gener ation\, curated by Stephen Heighton .

\n

\n

The portraits in the show exemplify different idioms of representation in the context of the current

\n

vernacular. The mediums range from embroidery by artist Cayce Zavaglia to photorealism by James Everett

\n

Stanley< /span>\, to the whimsical angel head by Randy Polumbo\; from Skylar Fein’s Washington (7UP) post-modern

\n

pop art to Nina Chanel Abney’s portrait of President Obama\, which was pain ted for the cover of Newsweek to

\n

commemorate his inauguration i n January 2009. Each explores differing polemics through the varied use of

\n

irony\, literal documentation\, satire\, pathos and humor\, amo ngst others.

\n

\n

\n

The show illustrates the contemporary relevance of portrait painting by

\n

demonstrating the continued proclivity of artist’s to politicize this most

\n

traditional of formats. Examples include Liz Mark us’ portrait of Nancy

\n

Reagan\, Nick Cave’s portrait of Abraham Lincoln\, and Charles

\n

Browning ’s portrait of a Native American warrior.
