Asher Penn’s Diane Arbus Skateboards

November 10, 2010

Modern Painters Magazine’s most recent issue featured an article on Asher Penn’s forthcoming show, Diane Arbus Skateboards.  Penn, influenced by Diane Arbus’s Aperture monograph and his desire to be a skateboarder, decided to draw skateboards and skate logos (Spitfire) in all of the photographs from Arbus’s Aperture monograph and mount them on skate decks.  Unfortunately Aperture denied Penn permission to use the photographs.  I like the Penn’s concept but I’d like to see him elaborate more on the pictures.  It seems to basic and minimal.  To see the all the pictures check out http://asherpenn.tripod.com/dainearbusskateboarddrawing.html
