New York – Jack Pierson at Bortolami Gallery
‘Go there now and take this with you’ is the evocative title of Jack Pierson’s exhibition at Bortolami Gallery. The english artist, best known for his wall sculptures, on this occasion presents large-scale photos of landscapes, paintings, sculptures and still lifes linked by beauty and a thread of passing drama, sexual tension, and ephemeral glamour. The photos, displayed without frames, are intended to age and evolve, questioning the manner in which we view photography.
