> DESCRIPTION

SOHO20 Chelsea Gallery presents Boyfriend, an exhibition of recent drawings by

Larassa Kabel. The exhibition runs through March 23rd, with an opening reception on

February 28th, 6-8pm.

Boyfriend is an exhibition, which examines the paradigms of identity, sexuality, pleasure

and self-image within which women exist. Kabel’s photorealistic drawings feature

tightly cropped heads of women in what may be derived as a compromising and

submissive position. The figures in Kabel’s drawings are silenced and gaze longing at

the viewer. The imagery derived from online porn websites originally intended for the

male viewer is refigured to focus solely on the eyes of the subject, where we find little

emotion registered in their expression. The artist’s impeccable skill in drawing and

composition create a unique tension in the works that allow the viewer to linger and

contemplate the fate of the subjects. Her exquisitely rendered figures reflect the

careful examination of these social standards and the tension between power and

submission that ensues.
