Provocative American Artist Cary Leibowitz, 1996, Paint on Wood

$8,064.23

About

This unique artpiece was exhibited at Gallery Ynglingagatan in Stockholm, late 1990s. Clipping from Wikipedia: Cary Leibowitz, also sometimes known as Candy Ass[1] (born 1963), is an American visual artist. Leibowitz's work can be found in the permanent collection of the Chase Manhattan Bank,[2] the Hirshhorn Museum,[2] The Jewish Museum,[3] and the Peter and Eileen Norton Collection.[4] Leibowitz's work will be the subject of a career survey at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco in January 2017. (Object art) Clipping from Artsy: Since his emergence in the 1990s (when he went by the moniker “Candy Ass”), Cary Leibowitz has styled himself as a self-loathing, reluctant artist. Through this cleverly crafted persona, he critiques the pretentiousness of the art world and the commodification of art. He also foregrounds his gay and Jewish identity, exploring how it places him outside of mainstream American society. His work—which encompasses prints, paintings, sculpture, and installation—is full of humor and pathos. He often incorporates such everyday items as mugs and knitted caps into his pieces, altering them with pointed text and arranging them into unlikely forms. In Stop Copying Me (2001), for example, he presented a row of identical paintings, each one reading, “Stop copying me,” except for the two in the middle, which interrupted with, “Do these pants make me look Jewish?”.
