CLASS WAR – Nick Flatt Opening Exhibition @ Moen Mason

You and your guest are cordially invited to celebrate the launch of Moen Mason, Tucson, Arizona’s newest contemporary art gallery.
Cocktails and refreshments served courtesy of Purity Vodka.
Texas-born Nick Flatt is known for his large scale photorealistic portraits, often with provocative themes gleaned from titles like Excess is Masturbation, Pay to Play, and Pink Threesome.
Through the use of models who physically resemble the prototype of those commonly used in mainstream advertising, Flatt whets the viewer’s unconscious appetite for consumption. However, their extreme, lascivious gestures distort our desire to the point of discomfort. By exposing the cheap triggers employed by these glossy glamazons, Flatt invites us to be repulsed by their honest unmasking.
Nick Flatt was named as one of Juxtapoz Magazine’s Top 20 Photorealists.
