Eva Lake: Judd Women Targets

April 19-June 3, 2012

Frosch&Portmann

53 Stanton Street

New York, New York

Frosch&Portmann is presenting the first solo exhibition in New York of Portland, Oregon, native Eva Lake. She is presenting three series, with the Judd Montages being her earliest. They integrate several of Judd’s totems of art history from a 1960s art magazine into obscure landscapes. Anonymous Women is the most recent series, which disguises and integrates the female form into patterns and environments that challenge the subtlety of feminine detail. The Targets series similarly places cut-up women beside pierced targets. Lake’s work challenges the undertones of familiar images such as targets and movie-stars in comparison to their intentions outside of her work.

New York, New York

J. Ivcevich is a self-taught artist showing work he has fabricated over the last two years. Utilizing digital images taken on his own camera, he strips environs down to their barest details. As a “sociological observer,” Ivcevich documents the “spirit of place” internationally and highlights grand issues unique to the human condition. The work was fabricated over the last two years and integrates his novel technique of using a syringe to outline forms and add layers of freeform line.
