new york construction sites

In 2015, the construction of a 42-floor building began outside New York City-based artist Gwyneth Leech’s window, leading her into a multiyear project documenting the visual drama of the city’s gradual yet rapid change in infrastructure. Construction Sites features paintings and works on paper by Leech that depict many of the new and forthcoming skyscrapers that are dramatically changing the cityscape, including Hudson Yards, Billionaire’s Row on West 57 Street, the new MoMA tower on 53 Street and One Vanderbilt rising next to Grand Central Station. Held at Clinton/Hell’s Kitchen Studios Gallery, these realist yet fantastical works are on view through June 8.

interview with michael laed

The fact that the actual garments were incredible was only the cherry on top. My dear friend and model, Elaine Chang (@laineypls), insisted I come to this fashion show she was going to be in.…

remembering lincoln: a portrait by anna rose bain

Unveiling spotlights a recently completed portrait commission, figurative work or upcoming exhibition from some of the best and most active members of the Portrait Society of America. This month Krystle Stricklin, guest writer for the Portrait Society, interviewed Anna Rose Bain about her recently completed portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Last year, artist Anna Rose Bain unveiled a stirring new portrait of Abraham Lincoln, The Second Inaugural Address, at the Goldenview Classical Academy, a charter public school in Golden, Colorado. The work was commissioned for the school by Hillsdale College, where Bain graduated in 2007 with a major in art. She was selected to create a painting that conveyed the classical ideals demonstrated by the school, and the academy’s principal, Dr. Garrow, came up with the concept of Lincoln drafting his second…
