> DESCRIPTION

Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects presents two solo exhibitions: in the front room, Matt Phillips: this, and then, and in the back room, Peter LaBier: Drawings.

Peter LaBier’s (b. 1980) vision spans a range of expressive form: he is musician, dancer, draftsman and painter.  LaBier is concerned with the total recording and transmitting of an experience in time.

LaBier’s drawings demonstrate a freedom and virtuosic intensity. His wiry, dense and expressive line recalls that of Giacometti and Van Gogh. LaBier works from direct observation; his hand moves elegantly through his subjects with an animated freedom, giving the impression of a kind of collaborative dance between artist, subject and page. His work echoes the past and emerges as a strikingly contemporary.

LaBier derives his imagery from an odd assortment of isolated still life subjects: a child’s organ, a Tibetan lion figurine, a porcelain glove mold, pineapples, Egyptian heads, Greek sculpture and vases of flowers. He engages the history of still life painting serially in sequences that recall draftsman/animators like Japanese filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki and William Kentridge.

He has exhibited at Plane Space gallery in New York and at Agent Gallery in Chicago. LaBier is the frontman for the electro-pop band Psychobuildings, who have released music through the Brooklyn based label All Hands Electric.  He recently directed a music video for the band MNDR’s song, “Feed Me Diamonds.”
