I love contemporary art. I've been meaning to post about it for a while now, and I thought it would make sense to open my BeaconArt category with a series I think most people will enjoy.
That's a self-portrait by Jack Pierson, from a series I saw at the Whitney Biennial in 2004. Super fancy Chelsea gallery Cheim & Read represents Jack in NY. Check-out more self-portraits after the jump.
I hope it didn't take you too long to realize the pictures are not actually of Jack Pierson, they are "self-portraits" of different people. That's what made this interesting to me, it's a reason in addition to the sheer beauty of the photos.
I hope you will like the next artists I will be posting on; it's gonna get a little crazier though.
