Stolen Rifle Practice Targets and Other Art

06.30.11 Marina Galperina

The new group show at Frosch & Portmann Gallery hates painting. These artists use torn magazines, recovered images and found materials with perforated peepholes instead. The surrealist collagist Eva Lake has been lifting practice targets from gun ranges since the early ’70s. Jessie Henson’s cut-up family photos are part of a genre, like Rubén B’s disappearing Sasha Grey series, but you know, not sexy. “reCovered,” Rafael Grassi, Jessie Henson, Eva Lake, Thomas Lowe and Garrett Pruter, Jun 30 – Aug 21, Frosch & Portmann, NYC
