Transfer Gallery is bringing in New Portraiture this weekend, the gallery’s second solo exhibition by Rollin Leonard, in a new partnership with XPO Gallery and Cloaque.org, running at the Brooklyn space from May 2 to May 23.
The photographic, semi-sculptural objects in the New Portraiture collection are the result of Leonard’s extensive new series of work that will span three exhibition spaces. Opening physically at Transfer on May 2, the collection will then exhibit digitally at Cloaque.org on May 20, and, after wrapping up at Transfer on May 23, the physical collection will move on to Paris’s XPO Gallery on May 28.
Continuing his exploration of the human body’s “digital afterlife”, Leonard’s photographed subjects are flattened by uniform lighting and an all-focus depth of field, algorithmically disjoined and dislimbed into abstract and yet still recognizably humanoid shapes.
