Sweet To The Bone by Rasmus Bjørn
May 18th – June 24
Caren Golden Fine Art is pleased to present Sweet To The Bone, Rasmus Bjørn’s first solo exhibition in New York.
Rasmus Bjørn’s work questions the misleading character of representation. His paintings portray gang members and bikers wearing the stereotypical gear associated with these groups – hooded shirts, leather vests and jackets with sewn-on badges and semi-concealed weapons. At first glance the viewer assumes the individuals depicted are criminals, but a closer look at the badges reveals a unexpectedly softer side. Rather than the skulls, swastikas and satanic slogans that we might see in news articles about gangs and skinheads today, we are presented with advertisements for benign, non-existent products like Natures Helper and Pet Rescue, or messages of love and peace like Gentle Warrior and Victim of Love.
Location: Caren Golden Fine Art, 539 W. 23rd St.
Time: 6 – 8pm
