“With postures and gestures a fiction of representation, Geerk imagines  how a  certain  fragile  moment, derived  from neither model  nor  photograph, can instead be  expressed through  atmosphere  and  body  language. The  nearly  monochromatic  palettes,  only  occasionally  warmed  by  other colors, adds to the aura of emotional tension.”⁣

⁣
Role Play aims to investigate the work of Philip Guston alongside contemporary artists Somaya Critchlow and Lenz Geerk who take on a performative and theatrical role in the subject matter of their paintings. This exhibition expands on the notions of representational vocabularies of identities and the limitation of how perception is evoked. By subtly implicating themselves in their subjects through the use of “props” and dramatic poses, these artists stimulate a comically morbid storyline imbued with methods of masquerade and role-play leaving the viewer implicated in their narrative.⁣
