Portraiture also found a home at the Lower East Side’s Art Week. Two artists, represented in two different galleries, have unique takes on the subject. Jessie Edelman’s Muse exhibition at the Denny Dimin Gallery seeks a disidentification of the figures she paints. In this, she wants her floating graphic figures with organic contoured outlines to disrupt specifity and embrace ecumenical power. Each figure is a muse, meant to rework symbolic, iconic and allegorical meanings: an ambitious task in a society that craves literal representation in portraiture.
