Iv Toshain is becoming a favorite of mine.
"Iv Toshain is a young Bulgarian artist currently living and working in Vienna. Her series of recent drawings, paintings and photographs, take a pointed and ironic look at an environment that mirrors the social codes with stereotypes, consumerism, brain drain, power exertion, frivolity, material life and reflects them back to her audience, beautifully slick and glamorous, through a very dark mirror. These images, are layered with the underlying disturbances that occur in a culture that celebrates youth, achievements and worships physical attractiveness..."
I like the layered yet simple look of some of these. I would love to visit her solo show at Fleetwing Gallery Brooklyn.
