NOAH BECKER is a “an acclaimed oil painter” who has presented many exhibitions, including those at international museums on his resume. Interestingly he is also a Jazz saxophonist, and .. an arts writer.
along with being a contributing writer for Art in America, Interview, Canadian Art, the HuffPost, and ARTVOICES, he is the founder of Whitehot Magazine.
and that seemed to be the case with all the self-portraits here, no matter the historical influence and / or background.
no wonder Mr. Becker seems fascinated himself, with his capturing his own image.
he does kinda play the genre, like a musical instrument. riffing, and borrowing, but keeping himself, front and center. in a nice tension of .. reality meets ‘fluidity’.
KEITH SCHWEITZER is also the Director of Public Art, Fourth Arts Block / FABnyc.
. . but LODGE has something that probably makes it a game changer, just beyond that discreet door at the back of the exhibition space.
