Zane Lewis, "Watch Me Slowly Death," Mixed Greens Gallery, Chelsea, NYC, Sept. 8th, 2009

The good news.  Jesus Christ endorses Chanel.  Or Chanel debris dispersed about the body of Christ. Artist, Zane Lewis, marries the two at his exhibition, "Watch Me Slowly Death,"  at Mixed Greens Gallery in Chelsea, where an 8' x 8' head of the Passion of Christ (Jesus with the crown of thorns for those of you not up on your bible studies) is composed of layers and strips of Chanel and Dior ads, and painted over in rich swirls and drips of pink, red and gold.  I've come to the conclusion that it's nearly a faux pas to talk about the art at an opening so the Jesus connotations to be discussed at the after after after-party.  I'll just say, art for my sake:  photos.

 2 Misshapes, 1 Missing


  1. Is that Merlin in the hat & glasses (2nd pic from last)?


  2. I actually don't know. He happened to be standing in the frame and I've seen him taking photos at some openings before, but I don't know him personally. Is the person you're thinking of a photographer?
