In Leonard Greco’s theatrical “Fairyland,” the artist uses a variety of mediums to offer a world both fantastical and deeply personal in nature. In a show currently running at MOAH:Cedar, viewers can explore “Fairyland” for themselves.
“Among other things, Greco touches on the weighty tableau of the Temptation of St. Anthony of the Desert and the perilous trials of Herakles. Greco’s aesthetic expression is influenced by his inclination to lighten somber, somewhat ponderous, existential themes with a gay touch (consciously selecting this word in both its current identity-laden use and its anachronistic yet more delightful sense). While the work possesses camp sensibilities, it would not be classified as irony due to the inherent affection Greco holds for his motley crew of heroes, saints, and sinners.”
“Fairyland” runs through March 31. See more works from the show below.
