Galerie Lelong in New York has a cool exhibit currently showing called “The Fifth Genre: Considering the Contemporary Still Life.” As you can imagine, this show has a nice spin on traditional “still life” art works. The results are a colorful and slightly twisted series of mixed media art pieces and I liked this exhibit a lot. “The Fifth Genre” reexamines common objects that have been the subject of paintings for generations and by updating these works to include the themes of over-saturation and consumerism, you are sure to think about traditionalism in the modern era.
“The Fifth Genre” runs through July 30, 2010 at Galerie Lelong which is located at 528 West 26th Street in New York.
