Keith Mayerson

Posted by Alex Moshakis,

Here is artist Keith Mayerson on his fortieth birthday, standing beneath a painting of Marcel Proust on his fortieth birthday. Is this courage or naivity? Who knows, it’s difficult to read. But either way it’s affecting somehow, perhaps more so than his less personal paintings, which deal with political leaders, famous writers and cartoons amongst other things. Mayerson’s works – all of them – should be celebrated as insightful snapshots of contemporary life.
