Nostalgia and Gratitude, Brokenness and Redemption   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

I only need one song to explain how I feel about country music: George Strait’s So Much Like My Dad. A modest hit in 1992, the tune’s not nearly as recognizable as Strait’s other classics. You’ll likely run into All My Exes Live in Texas, but probably not So Much Like My Dad. A few keys of the piano walk you into the song’s weather: the first few drops of an icy rain, a first snowfall. A brush hits the drumhead and somehow it’s cold. It hits a few more times a... [more]

Intimate Strangers: In Conversation with Matthew Morrocco  
by
7/7/14 Posted 7/7/14

Berlin, Jul. 2014: Matthew Morrocco’s “Berlin Series” depicts no-strings-attached encounters tied to the fabric of our most intimate human emotions. This tender photographic self-portrait series evokes the pleasure and pathos that can be embedded in online hook-ups. As a young New York artist studying in Berlin, Morrocco met older men and photographed them either alone or interacting with his nude body. He respectfully represents these men’s aged bodies and evident desires. P... [more]

Portrait Relief   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Katie Lyle at Erin Stump Projects (ESP) May 15th - June 14th
Posted 5/23/14

Katie Lyle's first solo show at Erin Stump Projects is both promising and relieving. They are paintings that will make your eyes and brain feel satisfied, as well as happy to see something, albeit traditional, that has been suspiciously absent from much contemporary painting: small-scale portraits. In a debut solo exhibition you typically are aware of which artists the artist likes. Of the seven paintings in this show, one nods fairly directly to Picasso (something a painter is almost required... [more]

Mapplethorpe: Very Eighties   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Robert Mapplethorpe at Grand Palais March 26th - July 13th
Posted 4/21/14

At a certain point as I was walking around the Mapplethorpe exhibition I thought, “You know something? I really don’t like Robert Mapplethorpe.” This was during the first half of the show where most of the work was in his "nude portraiture" mode. I mean, I can appreciate the formality of it all—the lines and triangles, neat, original compositions, the sculptural references. But there’s just something in the gelatin-silver-shininess of it; it all seems too slick,... [more]

Pernot’s Nomads   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Mathieu Pernot at Jeu de Paume February 11th - May 18th
Posted 4/9/14

Mathieu Pernot’s new show at Jeu de Paume follows twenty years of his career but it also follows the tragic downhill path some of modern society's marginal groups have taken since the twentieth century. While examining the nation state's mechanisms of supervision, control, and depression he also lingers on the historical role of photography as a collaborative practice. The curatorial orbit of his exhibition The Crossing was designed to create both spacious and conceptual "vis-à-vis"... [more]

Welcome to the Dollerhouse: Laurie Simmons' Kigurumi Portraits   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Laurie Simmons at Salon 94 Bowery March 7th - April 26th
Posted 4/9/14

It would be ridiculous to discuss gender issues, stereotyping, objectification, fetish, or fantasy in contemporary art without Laurie Simmons. For nearly four decades, using a variety of subjects and settings that include toys, costumes, collage, puppets, and people, Simmons’ photographs have created an indelible interpretation of how perception is formed. The current exhibition at Salon 94, Kigurumi, Dollers and How We See*, features Simmons' latest series of pigment prints. The bulk of... [more]

JR at Lazarides Rathbone Place 10/31/13 Posted 10/31/13

You might easily have missed JR’s latest cityscape takeover of London—surprising, given that the French photographer seems to have been a continual feature on press releases in the last few years —but rather than out in the open, JR presents his work this time within the guarded walls of Lazarides Gallery. Actions—up until the 13th November—pieces together the various accomplishments that have defined JR’s work throughout the last decade, collating his internati... [more]

My Country Has No Name: Interview with Toyin Odutola  
by
7/14/13 Posted 7/14/13

New York, Jul. 2013: Since receiving her MFA from California College of the Arts one year ago, Toyin Odutola has garnered much buzz as a young artist on the rise who maintains a fresh perspective on the flexible natures of race, identity, and nationality. Her process and progress are readily visible through her many social media outlets, which display her painstakingly prolific self-portraits. But who is the woman behind the work? From where has she sprung? Born in Nigeria, Odutola currently lives a... [more]

CCNY 00 65 55 (Blog) — Abigail Simon

Posted 12/2/10

CCNY 00 65 55 (Blog), December 2, 2010 Review — Abigail Simon The term “portrait” as generally understood, comes with a contingent assumption of specificity: it is assumed to be “of” someone, a specific person at a certain moment in time. We are by now familiar, in the rarefied air of our fine-art-ness, with the usual interrogations of this assumption: can we ever really know anything about a person from their surface, is the portrait of the photographer or the sitter, ranging all the...

WAYNE FORD's POSTEROUS, September 5, 2010 A New Kind Of Beauty by Phillip Toledan — Wayne Ford ‘Photographs should be like unfinished sentences. There should always be space for questions,’ believes British born photographer Phillip Toledano, and there are many questions raised in his latest series, A New Kind of Beauty, which is currently on show at New York’s Klompching gallery. Toledano’s photography is routed in social-political commentary, with his previous bodies of work including, Phonesex... [more]

Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2010 I received that lovely email again the other day saying that I am a finalist for the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize. Its the fourth time I've been selected for the show in the last 7 years. I love the National Portrait Gallery, it's such an honour to have my images on show there. One day, just maybe, I will win the competition and be a very very happy man. Luca Sage entry in Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize 2010 [more]

If I Wanted to be a Writer... Part 1  
by
8/24/10 Posted 8/24/10

A few years ago, a gallery asked me to write an artist statement to hang with my paintings.  I didn't have one and didn't think I needed one at the time, and so I kindly responded that my paintings speak for themselves. After a few back and forth emails, where it was explained why I needed one,  I finally conceded,  not because I had been convinced of the necessity of displaying the statement, but rather because I had been told that it would increase my likelihood of making a sale. I dreaded havi... [more]
