Club Paint is back—after exhibitions at White Columns in New York and Prospect 1.5 in New Orleans—with MORE PAINTINGS. The three-person collective makes garishly primitive figurative works that tweak modern masters and openly court bad taste. Imagine if John Waters got Henri Matisse to storyboard the script for Pink Flamingos and you have some idea how Club Paint would like to decorate your house.
The collective, now entering its fourth year, has neither slowed its production nor made concessions to a pseudo emotional maturity. This new crop of works is the most confident and self-assured yet. It features girls in cat suits, sad old queens, DINOSAURS, vertiginous abstractions, and marble heads on columns contemplating paintings of marble heads on columns.
Club Paint is Erin Allen, Isaac Gray and Keith Boadwee.
