Cheyenne Julien & Tau Lewis
Two exciting young artists share a phantasmic approach to the figure. Lewis, who lives in Toronto, presents midsized assemblages of driftwood, fabric, and fur that are tethered to armatures of concrete and salvaged steel—creatures sprung from the pages of a surreal bestiary of animal-saints. The Bronx-based Julien is a talented painter who populates her unsettled world with cartoonish women, upending racist caricatures. The scene-stealer is “Night Session,” whose gray-scale subject lies frozen in bed, naked and wide-eyed, as a disembodied pink hand holding a brush paints her black body white.
