Back and better than before. Right off his well received show at the Kitchen, which I didn’t see but gathered from the review that Lassry really got his sculpture and installation on. The show was so well received, I was ready to stop making jokes about him being the ultimate Roe Ethridge cover band or owing his career to Neil Winokur. But man, I don’t know what to make of Lassry’s debut at 303 Gallery. It seems he has finally gotten away from Roe Ethridge only to run headlong into a career as a terrible sculptor. Frames half covered in fabric, a yellow crib in the corner? I never remember disliking his color choice in frames, but man, this is one ugly show. It’s as if he sourced my grandmother’s leggings and/or prom dresses from the 80’s for material. Yup still don’t like Elad Lassry’s work. On the upside. he has grown into his own terrible art.
