Contemporary Art: Portraits @ Lesley Heller Workspace; New York

(Drivebycuriosity) - The ways artists portray themselves and others have changed. Gone has the days that they just try to replicate the reality, now they often integrate fictional elements.  You can see state of the art portraits @ gallery Lesley Heller Workspace in New York´s Lower East Side (54 Orchard Street lesleyheller).
