20th July 2018 - Having exhibited in a select number of highly regarded galleries in Los Angeles, London, Melbourne and Sydney, The Slow is proud to be showcasing Jess Lizotte's first exhibition in Asia, to launch in Room 13 on Saturday the 11th of August.
Since his first exhibition in 2014 at China Heights Gallery, Surry Hills, Lizotte's photographic artworks have acquired much acclaim, gracing the covers of magazines like GQ, Oyster and 10 Men, as well as the pages of iD, Inprint, and Clot.
Driven by an interest in the way in which people on the fringes of society influence popular culture and fashion, his subject matter often gravitates towards subcultures, whether it be skateboarders, low-riders or musicians.
Lizotte’s approach to his subjects is honest and considerate, fostering natural connections that are evident in his portraiture. His images evoke a sense of familiarity for the viewer, yet his photographic sensibilities give a fresh perspective with a filmic quality, capturing both tension and movement.
Lizotte will be showcasing a series of 10 rebellious black and white images for 2-months in The Slow's gallery space of Room 13.
