February 14 - March 31, 2007

Alexander Gray Associates

In his exhibition at Alexander Gray Associates, Cary Leibowitz presented new paintings on wood, with works referencing Post-War American art. Happy Rainbow, Sad Rainbow is a diptych that enhances Frank Stella’s 1970s work with psychological humor, questioning identity politic branding and art market taste; I Love Warhol Piss Paintings turns Leibowitz’s admiration for Warhol’s overlooked late work into a graffiti-like signage. I Feel Like the World is Passing Me By animates Ellsworth Kelly forms with text and color, pushing confidently elegant Minimalism into a confessional gesture. New Candyass multiples continue Leibowitz’s obsession with popular culture, Jewishness, and fine art, including ski caps emblazoned with “Fran Drescher Fan Club,” “Victor Klemperer Book Club;” I Love Warhol Piss Paintings scarfs, chair cushions, and buttons; and appreciations for Gertrude Stein, Marcia Tucker, Cindy Sheehan, and the Museum of Modern Art.
