Alex Israel | Bret Easton Ellis
Featuring the collaborative paintings of Alex Israel and Bret Easton Ellis, Los Angeles is presented as both background and subject in the respective oeuvres of each artist. For Israel, the American dream, as embodied by the L.A. mythos, remains affecting and potent, and he approaches his hometown with an uncanny coupling of local familiarity and anthropological curiosity. While Ellis, who became famous for his portrait of an amoral, decadent L.A. of the 1980s in his debut novel Less Than Zero, has continued to elaborate upon his jaundiced vision of a superficial youth society over the past two decades.
