Photos by G. Art by Richard Prince.
Controversial artist Richard Prince has an exhibit at Salon 94 in New York called T-Shirt Paintings, the inaugural exhibition at Salon 94 Bowery. This exhibit is a mini-retrospective, spanning 25 years of Prince’s work. Prince has stretched T-shirts of varying sizes and colors and has painted them in ways that only Richard Prince could. One of my favorite pieces in the exhibit (which you’ll see a photo of below) is a white shirt with a CD sticker from Led Zeppelin’s “Houses of the Holy” affixed to the center of the piece with a few tiny specks of paint down the right hand side of the shirt. Sometimes I like simplicity, what can I say. After this exhibit closes, the gallery will be renovated over the summer and will reopen in September 2010. Salon 94 is located at 243 Bowery and “T-Shirt Paintings” by Richard Prince runs until June 26, 2010.
