Image Art is pleased to announce LADYBOY, the highly anticipated solo show by Judith Supine, collagist of the psychedelic and surreal.
The exhibition features the artist's newest and most ambitious work to date, showcasing more than twenty canvases and large-scale woodcut sculptures up to fourteen feet high. Supine has transformed the entire gallery into a personal installation space, covering every inch of floor, wall and ceiling with silk-screened wallpaper, his signature fluorescent colors and dreamlike narratives.
LADYBOY references the "genderqueer". Supine describes the title's significance as "the
marriage of opposites in one person - comparable to the technique of collage, combining
seemingly disparate images to reveal something that wasn't previously apparent". An intimate encounter by the artist with a ladyboy in Bangkok served as the stimulus for this exhibition.
Opening Reception: Wednesday, April 13, 2011 (7 - 10pm)

Brooklyn-based Judith Supine uses his hyperactive imagination to merge images of people, pornography and design elements. He describes his materials as "free or at least really cheap": X-Acto knife, glue sticks, low-cost paint, thrown-out books, and magazines - whether sourced from the trash, the public library, the dentist's office, or bankrupt porn shops. Figures with disproportionate features are created, revealing a developed technique and distinct style-gritty and sophisticated. Supine is widely recognized for his art in the streets for both the pieces themselves and their exceptional placement. "He bursts out onto the streets on a completely different level", says gallery director Marsea Goldberg.
Judith Supine has participated in both solo and group exhibitions worldwide including galleries in Los Angeles, New York City, London and Berlin. His work was displayed at Wooster Collective's seminal 11 Spring Street show in 2006, and at the art festivals FAME in Italy and Nuart in Norway.
"Entering into Supine's world is a proper maelstrom headf**k experience - for the most part in a good way. His 'Ladyboy' exhibition promises to be just as wild. Hold on for the ride."
- Patrick Nguyen, co-author and editor of Beyond the Street
Heheh lucky you Wiz. I read an interview in Tokion where he said Judith Supine was his mothers name, he used it as he liked the idea of getting her into trouble! Dunno whether thats true though! Can't find the mag or a readable version online, can find a pointless version that you can look at but not read though: www.justinsolitrin.com/932584/JUDITH-SUPINE
