David Kramer: Recent Paintings and Drawings
David Kramer: Recent Paintings and Drawings at Feigen Contemporary. "...Recycled from other people's idea of garbage, Kramer's art turns refuse into mockeries of polished commercialism and glistening, muscular achievement. The original drafts and sources of much of his work's caustic humor, Kramer's drawings pair prosaic image-fantasies like 70s vacation vistas and a Virginia Slims billboard. Directly referencing America's conformist forest of cultural cliché, Kramer's writings riff on the oppressive, brain-deadening burden of unremitting, '24-7' advertising without directly locating 'the thing not named.'"
