. . . speaking of American realism and the vernacular !!
it’s alive and well – on the Lower East Side !!
meet JESSICA BAJOROS – with her ‘realist’ paintings behind her.
they have a natural dead pan archival take, almost totally photographic. but, often with a little bit of magic thrown in – under the radar !!
that’s Hesh with his Jessica Bajoros portrait on the right.
although I immediately liked her work, I didn’t know how to fit in into the ‘dialog’ of October 2011 – it was way ahead of the curve !!
it fits nicely with talk of Americana, archiving, and realism, for sure.
not to forget – the ‘spectacular’ vernacular – of the street. New York City style !!
