Lisa Yuskavage

Part 2 of photographs from the opening reception of the exhibition, Lisa Yuskavage at the David Zwirner Gallery, April 23 - June 13, 2015, New York: 533 West 19th Street. Photographs by Blair Prentice.

David Zwirner Gallery is currently showing new paintings and pastels by artist, Lisa Yuskavage. While known for her sumptuous and provocative portraits of strong women, Yuskavage has most interestingly chosen to paint a series of men. These exceptional new works continue to push the boundaries of contemporary figurative painting with her masterful use of color and ability to create flesh and form that is altogether very satisfying for the eye to take in. 

See Part 1 of the photographs from the exhibition here.

Now Open: Zhang Huan: Let There Be Light includes Zhang’s largest ash painting to date, measuring 122 feet long. Based on a photograph taken on June 15, 1964, the painting represents Mao Zedong surrounded by the central leaders of his government and over 1,000 loyal followers. The 18-panel work was made by laying it flat on the floor, priming the canvas with preparatory glue and then applying the ash, which is sourced from Buddhist temples in the Shanghai region. The temples know now what I am looking for. When they have enough ash they contact me. and we send a truck and make a donation [in return], Zhang says in an interview with Art Asia Pacific. 

Visit the exhibition at 510 West 25th Street on view through Saturday, December 5.

Self-misunderstanding, Rivane Neuenschwander

1.
1층에 조그만 달걀이 숟가락에 올려져 있습니다. 

2.
2층에 올라가면 대형 달걀이 기다리고 있죠. 

3.
25킬로 정도 된다고 해서 저걸 누가 왜 쓰나 했는데 한 남자가 쓰고 돌아다닙니다. 옴마야~

4.
친구로 보이는 남자는 재밌다며 사진을 찍어주네요. 

5.
까딱 잘못하면 목이 꺾여 다시 알을 깨고 나오기 전 상태로 돌아가는 건 일도 아니겠다 싶어 전 그냥 셀카만 찍고 나왔습니다. 

6.
현대 미술의 낯선 모습과 마주친다면 당황하지 말고 ‘새로운 무엇인가를 시도하려고 노력하고 있구나~’ 라고 생각하면 쉽게 이해할 수 있을 거라던 글이 생각나는 하루였네요.
