Unbreak My Heart: Luke Whitlatch.
This guy isn't afraid of beauty, or what we might find inside it.
Unbreak My Heart Press release . . .
Luke Whitlatch: This is my across-a-crowded-room choice for the show. I went to see a jammed and lively group show of drawings at Daniel Weinberg Gallery a few summers ago in LA, and amidst the Ed Ruscha's, Lee Bontecou's, and Dan Zeller's it was a small drawing by Whitlatch that pulled me in and held me close. When I saw a couple of his paintings at the LA Art Fair here in NYC the next year I officially became a fan. This summer Luke had a piece in a group show at Rivington Arms and that cemented the deal.
