Sasha Gordon: The Flesh Disappears, But Continues To Ache @ Stephen Friedman, London

Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

Stephen Friedman Gallery in London is pleased to present American artist Sasha Gordon’s first solo exhibition in Europe. Gordon paints surreal, anthropomorphic versions of herself in hyper-realistic detail. The artist uses these doppelgängers to explore the complexity of her identity as a young, queer, Asian-American woman. Her practice recalls the erotic, highly charged paintings of Paul Cadmus and his documentation of gay life in early 20th-century New York. Gordon’s work also resonates with Caroline Coon’s crisp-edged paintings and Amanda Ba’s unsettling figuration.
