Thomas Demand

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.
