On View: Charlie Isoe’s “In the Bad Bush” at Lazarides Rathbone

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

In his current solo show at Lazarides Rathbone, Charlie Isoe deconstructs the nude, turning voluptuous female bodies into strips of color that emanate from the focal points of his works like party streamers. Painting these figures over large-scale photographic prints of sunny landscapes, Isoe obliterates the idyllic, postcard-worthy scenes with improvisational brush strokes and scratchy line work. This show is a turning point for Isoe not only because of his new indulgence in abstraction, but because this marks his re-entry into the art world after disappearing from the public eye for several years. “In the Bad Bush” is on view through July 25. Take a look at some of the work in the show below, images courtesy of Lazarides.
