Fox Galleries presents An Intimate Distance; an empowering series of portraits by Esther Erlich. An Intimate Distance marks the launch of Spring in the Modern Seasons: The Great Curve publication and exhibition series documenting the unprecedented atmosphere of 2020. Erlich is best known for her provocative portraits that engage emotion through looking.
This enhanced intimacy utilizes fashion aesthetics and subculture iconography, a collection of paintings and drawings that depict half- figures, indeterminate hyper-gendered superheros with staring eyes and expressive hand gestures that explode into abstraction. They are a flurry of dazzling, self-assured characters, that hold your gaze and invite you into a performative narrative of mutual gaze.
The gallery is currently open by appointment only, in accordance with government restrictions.
The exhibition can also be viewed online. View the exhibition here.
