Roxy Paine: Denuded Lens
Marianne Boesky Gallery
September 4-October 18, 2014

This September, Marianne Boesky Gallery will present Denuded Lens, a solo exhibition of new works by Roxy Paine. Since the early 1990s, Roxy Paine has explored the comparison and contrast of organic elements with mechanic, illuminating the aesthetics that are in the heart of the artistic contemporary tradition. At the center of the presentation is Paine’s installment Checkpoint, a room-sized vision of a generic airport security spot, giving the viewer an opportunity to visually examine a distinct place that is solely experienced through a rushed, physical encounter. This space, rendered by computer modeling and meticulous hand-carving, is transformed into a frozen moment in time, turning a typically anxious experience into a quiet form of contemplation.
