Opener 26
Jeff Sonhouse: Slow Motion

Over the past ten years, New York-based artist Jeff Sonhouse (b. 1968) has created a powerful body of portrait paintings depicting often-masked black male figures that consistently defy and obscure classification. Adept at mixing pattern, color, and material, Sonhouse’s paintings feature a variety of unusual materials such as matchsticks, steel wool and cowry shells, and include references to art historical figures from Ed Paschke to Pablo Picasso.
The first solo museum exhibition devoted to Sonhouse’s work, Opener 26 brings together a selection of the artist’s paintings from 2003 to the present, including several recently created pieces that will be shown for the first time at the Tang.
