Marlborough Chelsea is presenting Wherever You Go, a solo exhibition of new work by photographer, filmmaker and artist Ari Marcopoulos. The Amsterdam-born Marcopoulos began his career in New York City printing photographs for Andy Warhol, and assisting the legendary Irving Penn. In his own images, he depicts the intimate lives of people living on the edge, often offering a dramatic take on every day life.
The works presented at the exhibition include large-scaled pigment prints and smaller photographs on rice paper. By printing the same image multiple times, he creates lush surfaces of densely textured black and white. The works depict many of Marcopoulos’ familiar subjects, from graffiti scrawled walls and skate-sessioned architecture to the more close-at-hand studies that the artist has made of his own family and friends.
