Adam Krueger

Through August 7, 2010

Fuse Gallery
93 2nd Avenue
New York, NY

"Hello, My Name Is Missy and I'm a Cutter" is a collection of works of sliced hyperrealist figures, Krueger presents a dialogue of desire, displacement and self-reflection.

These altered images allow the viewer to place their desires in the voids, giving the work a reinvigorated reading.
