program date: 
Tue, 08/03/2010

In August Sherrie Wolf will show “Faces” at the Laura Russo Gallery. All the paintings of faces are from art history. Each piece is no bigger than a foot square. Some will be hung in a long line-up, some will be put into a grid. If you’re down with your art history, you’re going to see some familiar faces – Wolf has lifted from Rembrandt, Ingres, Vigee Le Brun, Vermeer, Goya, Caravaggio and many others. She seems to have adapted the approach of each individual painter, not just the details of a face.
