Art In America

Thomas Demand

at Matthew Marks,
523 W. 24th St.

Most of Thomas Demand's photographs of meticulously colored construction paper models depict dramatic or politically important scenes and events, like the inside of the Oval Office or a cruise ship caught in a storm. The 19 photos in Demand's latest show, "Dailies," on the other hand, are mundane images culled from the artist's cell phone camera roll: an empty bulletin board dotted with colorful pushpins, the shadows cast by a decorative window grate, a yellow bar of soap perched on the edge of a bathtub. The dye-transfer process (it's Demand's first time using this method) imbues his prints with warm, saturated hues, their surfaces tactile and velvety.
