Michael Eastman painting Full Page in VOGUE

Description: Michael Eastman employs words and figures as though they were abstract elements. In his "Printed Matter Redesigned" series, Eastman sets about throwing off his commercial design traces to vastly improve familiar print media--in this instance a variation of a chic "Vogue" magazine cover from the 1930's. View detail . Eastman often uses graffiti-like writing and faux-primitive marks in making his paintings. Since Michael Eastman enjoys aping the look of naive art, we place him in that category. But, Eastman's approach to his work is extremely cerebral, often witty, and quite abstract--not at all the urgent, direct attitude typical of a naif or outsider artist. Visit the Tribeca studio of Michael Eastman whose work is included in the collection of Hirshhorn Museum (Washington,DC) and the Mauntner-Markof Collection (Vienna, Austria).
