Theodore is pleased to present (and we are excited to see) an exhibition of sculpture by Scooter LaForge opening on May 6th, with Opening Reception from 5:00 to 8:00pm.
Scooter LaForge (b. Las Cruces, New Mexico) is a New York-based artist who has lived in the East Village for the past 20 years. His unique style mines the canon of art history by infusing classical themes with a colorful sensibility.
LaForge works in various media, including painting, sculpture, and drawing, and employs unorthodox techniques and striking iconic images. Often combine-like, his works are a walking journal of images where ideas are explored and refined. LaForge approaches art-making intuitively, absorbing what surrounds him and working with agility and focus—drawing from a fertile inner emotional realm and an extensive painterly vocabulary.
His paintings have been shown at Howl Happening New York, Leslie-Lohman Museum in New York, the Friedrichshof Museum in Vienna, and the Spritmuseum/Absolut Art Collection in Sweden. In 2015, the artist was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant. He holds a BFA in painting from the University of Arizona.
Scooter LaForge: Sculpture will be on view from May 6 through June 18, 2022 with a Reception on Friday, May 6 from 5-8pm. Theodore is located at 373 Broadway between Franklin and White Streets, 6th Floor in TriBeca.
