Marne Lucas: Mandwich

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday August 31
Cock Gallery
625 NW Everett St., No. 106
 
In addition to Michael Alago’s portraits of musclebound stud-muffins, Cock Gallery features the latest entries in Marne Lucas’ Mandwich series. Lucas works across a gamut of media, but some of her best-known works are pin-up portraits of glamorous women. A corollary series, Mandwich, portrays male subjects with the same mingled sense of playfulness and sensuality. The portrait Christopher, Giraffe, for example, shows a tall, bearded redhead standing on a New York stairwell, wearing nothing but a pair of red-and-black tube socks and yellow-striped underwear. The man is hugging a giant inflatable giraffe, which just happens to match the pattern of his briefs. It’s a sexy non sequitur, which only an artist with Lucas’ chutzpah could pull off. . Through Aug. 31.

David Geiser: Oceanic

Tuesday, Sep 16, 2014
