Presented by the New York Academy of Art, “WATER|BODIES” is curated by artist Eric Fischl and Academy President David Kratz. Generously sponsored by Cadogan Tate, “WATER|BODIES” presents paintings, photographs and sculptures by established and emerging artists with connections to both the East End and the New York Academy of Art. Life on the South Fork of Long Island is based on and intrinsically connected to the water, and this show explores water, bodies and the inevitable meeting of the two. The works in this exhibition depict the sea, the shore, the pool, sunbathers and the nude as a lively and expressive genre that interweaves themes of natural beauty and the nature of pleasure.
Over 30 artists are featured in the show, with works from newly minted Academy MFAs hanging alongside pieces by artists such as Ross Bleckner, Patrick Demarchelier, Eric Fischl, Ralph Gibson, Isca Greenfield-Sanders, April Gornik, Michael Halsband, Enoc Perez, and David Salle.
