Contemporary Art: Diptychs by Brad Jones @ Gallery Sargent`s Daugthers, New York

(Drivebycuriosity) - Contemporary art is often a play with shapes and colors. The gallery Sargent´s Daughters in New York´s trendy Lower East Side  (179 East Broadway, New York sargents) has an interesting example for that.

The place is showing an exhibition called "Brad Jones: Diptychs (through December 21, 2014). Brad Jones is an ongoing collaboration between artists Brandi Twilley and Jennifer Rubell (artnet). The artist`s cooperation began in April 2013. Since then the pair meet three times each week for two hours at a time to engage in live portrait painting sessions in which Twilley paints and a nude Rubell poses.


As you can see the painter played with the shape of his model. The paintings are all "oil on canvas".

The paintings show different stages of alteration, a kind of metamorphosis.

 Let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy.
