SOHO20 Chelsea Gallery presents Boyfriend, an exhibition of recent drawings by
Larassa Kabel. The exhibition runs through March 23rd, with an opening reception on
February 28th, 6-8pm. Boyfriend is an exhibition, which examines the paradigms of identity, sexuality, pleasure and self-image within which women exist. Kabel�s photorealistic drawings feature tightly cropped heads of women in what may be derived as a compromising and submissive position. The figures in Kabel�s drawings are silenced and gaze longing at the viewer. The imagery derived from online porn websites originally intended for the male viewer is refigured to focus solely on the eyes of the subject, where we find little emotion registered in their expression.
