Shag's latest exhibition, Voyeur, is a typically colourful series of paintings linked by a theme of voyeurism. Happily hedonistic behaviour is observed by figures within the scene or by a series of peepers who unabashedly gaze upon sophisticates at leisure. The mid-century modern lifestyle and aesthetic set the scene for the good life à la Shag. The artist admits to having wandered through his neighbourhood in his early days, peering into picture windows and substituting real lives for television.
Voyeur wraps up at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York tomorrow.
