Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters honors photographs that have impacted Sandro. Pieces include Irving Penn’s photograph of Truman Capote in a corner; Phillippe Halsman’s portrait of Salvador Dalí; Dorothea Lange’s image of a migrant mother; Diane Arbus’ classic photo of identical twins; Richard Avedon’s beekeeper, among others.
Gregory Scott creates narrative pieces that reference specific artists (Vincent Van Gogh, Damien Hirst, Mark Rothko ) that have had an impact on his life. Using illusion and surprise, he challenges the definitions placed on photography, painting and video, expanding its discourse and creating a dialogue with the viewer.
Francesco Pergolesi sees himself as a guardian of a vanishing world where people congregated to talk about families and daily activities. Pergolesi’s body of work, Heroes, is devoted to this disappearing landscape. A typical piece begins when the artist meets a person, or sees a shop, that evokes a memory. Working together, Pergolesi and his subject create a story that honors the past while preserving the present.
