Dancing Foxes presents a conversation moderated by curator Lauren Cornell between the artist, Marina Ancona of 10 Grand Press, and writers Alex Kitnick and Ruba Katrib. Ranging from figurative representation to gestural abstraction, monumental landscape paintings to more intimate portraits, the oeuvre of American painter Leidy Churchman channels his artistic and literary influences, friendships, moods, surrounding landscapes, and the visual iconography of divergent religions and philosophies. Crocodile is the first comprehensive monograph on the artist’s work and highlights his investigations into consciousness through renderings of anthropomorphic animals and psychological states, appropriation of existing artworks and aesthetics, and recastings of various signs and symbols. The conversation will be followed by a book signing at the Dancing Foxes table.
