Pepperstein in New York

PP NY BoothPepperstein’s exhibition at the prestigious ADAA Annual Show succeeded in provoking a reaction (see links). The Secret Drawings of Jacqueline Kennedy, a multi-dimensional project bringing together video, short-story, fashion and art, employs mise en abyme in a wide-ranging exploration of modern myth and ancient mythology. But for some New Yorkers there remains a comforting haze around the memory and image of Jackie O. Like children we demand that our heroes should be fleckless, and easily believe them so. This is why painting icons has never been straightforward as Manet discovered when he refused to idealise Christ.
