September 10, 7pm-9pm
Iconography, old and new, exists in our everyday lives. It is, incorporated through a less traditional sense in Paul Leibow's work. In his new "FeelLicks" series, abstraction and collage merge in his paintings, installation, and sculpture, along with a process that appears "tongue in cheek". Pulling inspiration from source material that includes vintage characters, Leibow overlaps human and cartoonish figures that provide accessible reference points, which in turn forms his mark-making.
The FeelLicks series has been five years in the making, loosely examining the relationship between conceived characters while hinting at playful remnants of its vintage origins. There always is some form of social injustice that finds its way in mash-ups from the public sphere, subversively embedded in his work. These art objects open up ideas about the dues we have to pay, the pleasures we seek and often represent gender, sexuality, and other themes around the human condition.
FeelLicks opens to the public 7-9pm Friday September 10, 2021.
