Luke Whitlatch, The Key to a Cigarette is a Man Named Narch
I've been waiting for the show opening tonight at Rivington Arms, There is no there there, for almost two years. And for one reason: Luke Whitlatch. His work knocked me out two summers ago when I saw it in a group show of drawings at Daniel Weinberg Gallery in LA. I've been waiting for someone to show it here in NYC ever since. Kudos to Rivington Arms for rocking it by including Whitlatch in what looks like a pretty promising group show. Here's my initial reaction to his work. Weinberg also had some of his paintings at the LA Art Fair in 2007, and I went off all over again. Trust me on this one, kids.
