Photos by G. Art by Aaron Smith and Anthony Iacono, respectively.
New York! Time’s a-wastin’ if you want to see two great exhibits underneath one roof. Until June 26, 2011 at Sloan Fine Art in New York, you can see Aaron Smith’s “Coterie of the Wooly-Woofter” as well as Anthony Iacono’s “Victor Victoria.” The best way to describe Aaron Smith’s portraits in a word is “juicy.” Smith has painted Victorian and Edwardian gentleman using very rich and vivid colors and each view will make you reconsider the “straight and narrow” back story we’ve been fed about these generations gone by.
Anthony Iacono’s exhibit “Victor Victoria” repurposes androgynous Victorian miniatures, incorporating a variety of found and handmade elements to create fetishized, narrative portraits. Using objects such as Play-Doh, toy fragments and collectibles, you’ll find your mind trapped in the worlds Iacono has created long after you’ve left Sloan Fine Art.
Both exhibits close on June 26, 2011.
Sloan Fine Art is located at 128 Rivington Street in Manhattan.
