Janet Borden, Inc. opens a new exhibition of photographs by Neil Winokur

NEW YORK, NY.- Janet Borden, Inc. opened Neil Winokur: Produce, a new exhibition of photographs by this master of the irreducible. The exhibition runs from 11 September – 20 October 2021.

Neil Winokur, who is widely known for his deadpan rendering of dogs, people, and pets, has turned his attention to fruits and vegetables. Begun during quarantine, these are luscious portraits of humble forms. Although free of irony, the images evince a playfulness as well. They are seductive without being sentimental, illustrative not metaphorical. The straightforward pose of the object against a brilliantly monochromatic color background is Winokur's signature style. Using gels in addition to color backdrops, Winokur charms more light and more intense hues that usually seen. This gives the subjects their iconic look. Even mushrooms are seductively attractive.

Each print bursts with hyper-saturated color. Fennel fronds are gently articulated against an acid-yellow background; a simple garlic clove discloses a variety of purple shades. A humble little patty pan squash occupies its frame like a champ. While the objects chosen are of an elementary nature, their visual impact is complex, elevating them to celebrity status.

Neil Winokur’s work is currently included in most major museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Museum of Modern Art, Houston; The Jewish Museum; The Denver Art Museum; The Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and others. His monograph, Everyday Objects, was published by the Smithsonian Institution. A three-volume monograph, Neil Winokur: Portraits, Objects, Dogs was recently published by Matte Editions.

Janet Borden, Inc. is located at 91 Water Street, Brooklyn, New York 11201. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 11-5. F
