Innovative Cinematic Painter Joe Fig
USA- New York, NY | Oct 16 2012 | (23:13:24 - EDT)
For decades, the myth of the alienated, struggling artist-genius has populated the big screen. Such movies are the subject matter of Joe Fig's exhibition, "Cinematic Paintings," on view through Oct. 20, 2012 at Cristin Tierney Gallery.
In "Cinematic Paintings," Joe Fig furthers his investigation into the myth of the artist with intimately sized oil paintings that have a powerful cinematic quality, capturing scenes of the artist at work in the studio, with his muse, in a moment of inspiration, etc. The exhibition has been featured in The Daily Pic by Blake Gopnik, The Morning News, Arte Fuse, and The Ministry of Artistic Affairs.
This body of work is an extension of Fig's interest artists' lives, both the mythologies and the realities. His acclaimed book "Inside the Painter's Studio" (2009), now in its 6th printing, explores the day-to-day studio practices of 24 successful contemporary artists, including Chuck Close, Dana Schutz, and Mary Heilmann.
