Modern Art Monday Presents: Elad Lassry Nailpolish

Elad Lassry Nailpolish
Photo by Gail

Elad Lassry (born 1977, Tel Aviv, Israel) is an Israeli-American artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. His chromogenic color prints — still life compositions, stock images, photocollages and studio portraits of friends and celebrities — never exceed the dimensions of a magazine page or spread and are displayed in frames that derive their colors from the dominant hues in the photographs. I love how this photo looks so much like an ad, and thus succeeds on the same level as the work of Andy Warhol to elevate commercial images to the realm of fine artwork.

Nailpolish (2009) is a new acquisition to the photography collection of the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.
