soft and low

“I am black with love / neither boy nor nightingale / intact as a flower / I yearn without desire.”
From “Narcissus Dancing” by Pier Paolo Pasolini.

Logan T. Sibrel is an artist based in Brooklyn, NY. He makes paintings, drawings music, and zines.

The works in soft and low are of half-formed figures – groping, posing, and failing at fellatio. Focused on the performative components of intimacy, the pieces’ composition and frontality are part Caravaggio, part American middle-class family portrait.

These paintings and drawings are scattered with fragments of lyrics from ‘60s girl groups and bits of dialogue which are as misleading as they are telling. While the content in Sibrel’s work is largely [homo]sexual, he actively refuses sensuality, which is lost to self-awareness. The subjects in the pieces wish to be desirable and objectified but also face the discomfort of this being a form of dispossession.
