Photos by G. Art by Titus Kaphar.
“Classical Disruption” at Friedman Benda by American artist Titus Kaphar marks his first solo exhibit in New York. Kaphar cuts, slices, sculpts and re-orders his original painted images.
As you can see from these photos, “Classical Disruption” mixes the historical past with the ever-present vacancy of the 2-second-attention-span generation.
It’s hard to tell from the above photo, but the figure is made out of canvas that protrudes from the painting. It’s very cool, according2g. I was fortunate enough to attend the opening night gala reception and I had the opportunity to tell artist Titus Kaphar how much I enjoyed his work. He was very cool. See a photo of that experience after the jump.
“Classical Disruption” by Titus Kaphar is now showing at Friedman Benda (located at 515 West 26th Street) in New York. The exhibit runs until April 2, 2011.
