Torn from the Pages
The Directors of Marlborough Gallery are pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by the inimitable American artist Red Grooms. The exhibition, entitled Torn from the Pages, will open October 24 with a reception from 6:00-8:00 PM and will continue through December 1, 2012. Since Ruckus Manhattan, his first widely acclaimed exhibition at Marlborough in 1976, Grooms has staked his claim as one of America’s most original, inventive, and popular artists. In this exhibition he turns his creativity towards other established artists, making them his subjects. The exhibition comprises 24 small mixed media constructions that examine influential artists from the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including Gerhard Richter, Leonora Carrington, Edward Hopper, Natalia Goncharova, Edouard Vuillard, Erich Heckel, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, John Marin, Richard Prince, René Magritte, Henri Matisse, Dorothea Tanning, Andy Warhol, Louise Bourgeois, Paul Cezanne, Eugène Atget, Donald Judd, Roy Lichtenstein, Willem de Kooning, Pablo Picasso, Odilon Redon, and Yves Tanguy.
