On the second floor of @LevyGorvy is an extremely curious work by Dan Colen that I was so excited to see and spent quite a bit of time analyzing. This new body of work presented in “Mailorder Mother Purgatory” is part of his search for “ambiance and emotional depth” while he “pursues an art depth rooted in the history of painting.” "Rabbit and the Moon” sits in the center of the gallery surrounded by paintings pulled from Bambi. She seems utterly real but on closer inspection, she appears as if she were pulled from a hyperrealist painting as there are slight imperfections such as her too skinny fingers that don’t have the strength to hold up the rabbit, a too sunken armpit, and hair painted instead of laid over her ear. What is also interesting is that her hair is sculpted whereas the hair on the rabbit is real. Like the paintings that surround her, this is a romanticized and eternalized moment that is unrealistic but curious all the same.
