LESLIE KRIMS

Paci contemporary gallery, Brescia, 2014.

“My work, and that of a few others, helped establish a new direction. What we did displaced traditionalist, activist photography. These things often happen in the world of art. It is hard to account for taste or fashion. One always pays a dear price for poking fun at the left in American culture. My most recent pictures attempt to show that “texts” can hammer most any picture’s meaning into a politically useful shape. If I do this adroitly, standard disingenuous, hypocritical, absurd, and irritating leftist messages are deconstructed, their methods made transparent. It’s fun to do.”
