Philip Perlstein (b. 1924), an artist renowned for his decades -long practice of painting the nude – male and female, solo or in company – has rarely depicted the landscape of the city he calls home. In Entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel, Night-Time (1992), he captures the nighttime vista from the window of his New York studio in the West 30s, near the approach to the Lincoln Tunnel. In his typically inventive way, the artist calls attention to the construction of his composition – the red mullian of his window reminds us that we are looking through a deliberately framed view — just as the Mickey Mouse figurine at bottom right is a humorous reminder of the props of an artist’s practice.

Previously, the sculpture was on display at C24 Gallery in Chelsea as part of Tolle’s February 2018 exhibit, Bent. Continue reading Eureka By Brian Tolle at Federal Hall
