Pow, Right in the Face!
Laura Spector and Chadwick Gray get all personal with art
By Wayne Alan Brenner, 4:55PM, Fri. Sep. 30, 2011
Laura Spector and Chadwick Gray
go around the world, scouting for forgotten
19th-century artworks in the basements
and back rooms of galleries & museums.
Well, everybody needs a pasttime, right?
But Laura Spector and Chadwick Gray,
when they find these works of art, also re-create them.
She paints them on his face and body.
Yeah, not many people with a pasttime like that, hey?
But what's best – besides how basically charming
these two globetrotting artists & provocateurs are –
is that Spector's painting skills are pretty damned epic,
would be impressive even if she weren't using her partner
as a goddam living canvas.
Caution: MAJOR SKILLS AHEAD.
Anyway, listen: Spector and Gray will be talking about what it takes to do That Thing That They Do,
in a public and entertaining pitch for support, at Jerry's Artarama on Saturday from noon 'til 2pm.
Join us there, won't you?
