Erik Patton at Amos Emo Gallery

I loved these works by New York based artist Erik Patton, seen at his solo show at Amos Emo in Dumbo.  Patton photographes models while projecting video scenes on them during the shoot. He then layers paint onto the printed images -creating a layering of not only media but of gender and charged emotion.

As the title of the show is Metasexual, the harmony and dichotomy is emphasized both  visually and metaphorically. We see a beautiful blond woman with a black and white naked man superimposed on her, surrounded by a radiating aura of warm colours and dark ominous shadows.  The results are both dark and glowing, but still captivating and beautiful.
