Evan Gruzis

Headed over to Brooklyn this morning to Evan Gruzis’s studio, and got to take some photos of his new work – which looks great.  Gruzis is on the Deitch Projects roster, and I asked him if he knows anything about Jeffrey Deitch’s plans for his New York operation and he gave me a flat “No,” but said that the people involved are having a meeting sometime next week.  Gruzis is known for his hyper-skillful use of ink, and his sardonic re-purposing of advertising’s seductive imagery.  In a recent interview he wrote about the work as being “… not product vehicles, but hollow gestures that create a feedback-loop between a familiar aesthetic and a desire for meaning.”  Gruzis has a show in Athens in April at Andreas Melas Presents.
