Photos by G. Art by David LaChapelle.
If you are a fan of the surrealistic photographs of David LaChapelle (not to be confused with the comedian whose name is similar but not and it’s unbelievable how many people mix the two up), you will also enjoy his latest exhibit “Land Scape” at Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York.
The sites depicted in this exhibit are of gas stations and refineries and when you take a closer look, you will see that the objects that make up these structures are soda cans, straws and other items that typically spend more time on this planet in land fills than being useful items.
As always with Lachapelle’s works, the photos are very large and really must be seen in person to grasp detail of each work. The opening night party was filled with LaChapelle’s admirers from Amanda Lepore to artist Mark Ryden. It was quite a scene.
Despite being pretty mobbed, David LaChapelle was extremely nice to everyone and even posed for a photo with yours truly. Thanks David!
David LaChapelle’s “Land Scape” will be on view through March 1st, 2014 at Paul Kasmin Gallery, Located on the corner of Tenth Avenue and 27th Street.
