Stephen Sprouse’s meteoric rise to become America’s daring darling of the fashion world is a story still being processed. The Dorian Grey Gallery presents an intimate selection of 35 of Sprouse’s works on paper, drawn from a large archive that spans the years of 1974 to the late 1980s.
The skillful works includes sketches and designs created with ink markers. Several of the pieces show Sprouse’s use of the Xerox machine, others nod heavily to Jackie Onassis, and still others reveal the heavy influence of rock and punk music on the artist’s aesthetic sensibilities.
Stephen Sprouse’s historical connection to the streets of the East Village from his days as a pioneering force in the world of fashion design makes the location of this exhibit at the Dorian Grey Gallery a fitting tribute to the artist’s roots in NYC.
