Featured Artist: Sam McKinniss
Sam McKinniss’ Self-Portrait with Peonies or My Little Peony, currently on view at Hundred Forsyth, is seductive in its nod to traditional portraiture and its hazy pink and yellow morning light. Recently, Sam’s work has assumed a new atmospheric quality. Ghostlike portraits of men wearing glowsticks around their necks, these paintings embody both the austere tone of Jusepe de Ribera’s paintings of saints and martyrs as well as capture the anonymous energy of New York’s rapturous partiers.
