LAURA COLLINS / FREDERICK NITSCH
Opening Friday, September 18, 2020 | Online
EXTRA Projects presents UNPORTRAIT, featuring collage works by Laura Collins and Frederick Nitsch.
Well known for her humorous paintings of celebrities, Laura Collins dips into collage to dismantle typical beauty tropes, fusing real and surreal to suspend promises of perfection in favor of presenting alternative beauty narratives for mass consumption.
In contrast, Frederick Nitsch’s painted collages explore potential worlds within the subjects of found photographs, pondering what identity could be as abstract form and place. His replacement of literal identity with curiosity about the depths beyond the facade conveys reverence for the mysterious totality of these unknown subjects.
