Israel Charney
du 5 avril 1976 au 1 mai 1976
The Daily News

Ce document est uniquement disponible en anglais :
«Israel Charney’s creations and artifacts now on show at Optica also have a cartoonish allure – the old show ads and paperdoll wax may even evoke a sense of low-camp nostalgia in some semi-young viewers. But the most striking portion of the Charney material is the series of crayon drawings. He portrays imaginary beasts which are at turns menacing and goofy – one might say a quirky amalgam of B. Potter – Dr. Seus, wedded in the light of California funk. These icons refer to a childhood no one ever really lived, a kind of gallery in which impulses and feelings are separated and given not only a name but a body. There’s irony in the contrast of meticulous crayon rendering in images such as Mouse case (‘… a gogetter,’) and his silly looking countenance. This is a refreshing show, unabashedly droll and ugly, yet entertaining without recourse to whimsy. Foolish free-flow that possesses its own uncanny wisdom.»
