Contemporary Art and Portraiture
4 May 2009

I am pleased to announce my participation in a group show organized around contemporary uses of portraiture by Cristin Tierney Fine Art Advisory Services. I helped install seven paintings along with my video, A Study for Sofia Coppola’s Film: Powhida this afternoon in Cristin’s new exhibition spaces at 547 West 27th St. The work was originally shown as part of a solo exhibition at Haines Gallery in San Francisco. The show has a great line up including Joe Fig, Sebastiaan Bremmer, Jennifer Dalton, and Danica Phelps. The artists address portraiture from a critical distance. My contributions are portraits of the actors and actresses playing fictional versions of real and imaginary characters. The portraits are accompanied by the 13 minute video. Please join us for the opening on Friday. Despite these dark times, there might even be some cocktails.
