Lorenzo Triburgo: Transportraits

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday June 21
 
For this series, entitled Transportraits, Lorenzo Triburgo photographed transgendered men in front of painted backdrops. Each backdrop was created in response to the technique of Bob Ross, host of the infamous public-television show, The Joy of Painting. In his artist statement, Triburgo curiously invokes the romanticized portraiture of John Singer Sargent and the heroic landscapes of Alfred Jacob Miller. What those masters have to do with a schlockmeister like Bob Ross is anybody’s guess. There’s a disconnect between the seriousness with which Triburgo sets out to depict trans-man identity and the ironic cheesiness of the backdrops, undercutting the impact of what could have been a much more powerful body of work. June 6-July 15.
