From now until November 18th, Tache Gallery in New York City will feature a solo exhibition of the talented Andrew Salgado. Anxious is the Canadian photographer’s series depicting historic masculine portraiture handled with an experimental, painterly sensibility suggesting displaced identity. The harsh brush strokes emphasize the masculinity, and the bold colors highlight Salgado’s aggressive and politically-charged narrative.
“The work asks for consideration of an evolving language of figuration and abstraction, calling attention to what is visible and what is suggested: pulling the viewer from the sutures of representation, and drawing attention to the painterly versus the metaphorical,” he shares about Anxious. If you are in the area and feel like a profound art experience, be sure to stop by.
