Liliana Bloch Gallery presents Christian Fagerlund: "Unmade" opening reception
“Unmade,” Christian Fagerlund’s first exhibition at Liliana Bloch Gallery, consists of two recent series of oil paintings. The first is a group of back portraits. Using a relatively consistent setting, composition, and scale, these paintings collectively explore themes of self, specificity, and vulnerability.
The second series represents a departure from Fagerlund’s figurative realist approach and its focus on naturalistic drawing and form. These paintings are distillations of complex visual moments, records of a specific time and location, scrupulously observed and represented as ratio, value, and color.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through June 16.
