    Red Grooms: Torn from the Pages II
    Mar 19 2014 - Apr 19 2014
    Press Release

    The Directors of Marlborough Gallery are pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by Red Grooms.  This exhibition, entitled Torn from the Pages II, will open on March 19 with a reception from 6:00-8:00 PM and will continue through April 19, 2014.  This will be artist's second Torn from the Pages exhibition with Marlborough Gallery, a continuation of the first exhibition which took place from October to December of 2012.  Red Grooms came to international attention through his early Happenings, like Burning Building (1959), and his famed three-dimensional constructions, such as Ruckus Manhattan, which was exhibited at Marlborough Gallery in 1976.  He has worked in a variety of media, including film and theatrical performances.  This exhibition comprises 19 small mixed-media constructions that explore and delve into the creative realms of other artists including Joseph Cornell, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Yayoi Kusama, Paul Klee, Edward Munch and Francis Picabia. 

    In a new take on his hallmark three-dimensional constructions, which compound painting and sculpture, Grooms incorporates an element of collage into the works in this exhibition, integrating pages from magazines with watercolor, acrylic, ink and other media, creating perceptive portraits of other artists and placing them within the enviornment of their own works.  For example, in Galactic Orbs (Yayoi Kusama), 2013, Kusama appears three times as if receding into a portal of her iconic dotted dimensions.  Edward Hopper sits upon a bed in one of his own compositions, and Titian paints one his famous figures in plein aire near a sign reading "Portraits, $1.00."
