In conjunction with Spencer Drate & Judith Salavetz, The Ward- Nasse Gallery located in Soho, NYC, is proud to present an exhibition of the amazing work by American artist Xany Rudoff. Xany Rudoff is a Los Angeles-based artist who has been working as a professional painter for the past ten years. Trained at one of the most prestigious fine art programs in the country,UCLA, Rudoff has been featured in many notable publications including Vanity Fair Magazine, The New York Times Magazine, The LA Weekly, & most recently, featured in a six page spread in the cutting edge London Art publication, Cock No.7, for their "Dreams" & "Vinyl" themed issues. May 4, 2013 The Ward- Nasse Gallery located in Soho, NYC is proud to present an exhibition of artist Xany Rudoff "Iconic Illuminating Album Cover Paintings" will be Xany's first solo show in New York City. Her current work, the “Icon Series”, features vintage album covers that have been painted and embellished using 24 carat gold leafing Renaissance and Byzantine era techniques to affect the look of religious icon paintings. In these works, Xany explores the idea of the iconic by using found albums such as David Bowie’s, Aladdin Sane” and Led Zeppelin’s, Houses Of The Holy” amongst many others,and applies gold leaf to the album’s surface, followed by extensive burnishing, painting and lacquering techniques in the same time honored tradition of the Old Masters.She transforms the covers into beautiful, luminescent "Icons" that reflect the modern day "worship" of classic albums & musicians of today. The result is a breathtaking series of work that glow with the burnished luster of a church fresco, but are intimate and personal in size and image. Rock and roll icons are made magnificent in a work that is at once transcendent and familiar and take the ordinary into the extraordinary.http://www.xanyart.com/
