Catsuit for Men Installs

2014

James Krone, Catsuit for Men, The Night Gallery, Los Angeles, 2014 Using various counterfeit perfumes from which the paintings take their names (Catsuit for Men, Misty Cherry, Leather Woman…), Krone writes scented spells onto raw canvas. These canvases are then lit on fire, and although the stacked letters that spell out the various incantations are protected by the alcohol in the perfume, the negative space between them becomes charred by flames. In Krone’s work pyromancy gives formal presence to otherwise invisible inscriptions, creating an aesthetic rhetoric of abstraction that can only be communicated, accepted or rejected by primal, aphasic tendency.
