New Video: Dan Herschlein Finds Comfort in Horror and Fear

In a new film from our New York Close Up series, Dan Herschlein returns to his childhood home on Long Island to work on a series of four plaster reliefs, titled “Night Pictures,” for a show at JTT Gallery in Manhattan. Herschlein’s unsettling sculptures of headless figures, backlit windows, and lonely suburban tableaus evoke darkness and fear as a means toward emotional understanding. Herschlein recalls the feelings of aloneness and alienation that growing up in his hometown evoked, channeling those emotions into the work and explaining his interest in the voyeur as “somebody who feels outside of the equation.”

This is the third in a series of five new Art21 films premiering throughout Spring/Summer 2019.
