JEFFREY DEITCH: JOVEN TWITCHY BY HARMONY KORINE
January 29 - 11:00 am - February 28 - 7:00 pm
Jeffrey Deitch is pleased to present Joven Twitchy, an exhibition of new paintings by Harmony Korine in the Miami Design District. Known as one of the most influential filmmakers of his generation, Korine has also cultivated a long time painting practice that expands the definitions of art and artist through a multimedia approach infused with a post-Pop aesthetic. Painted in Miami, his Joven Twitchy works capture the sinister beauty of South Florida and reflect the tropical fantasia of his films Spring Breakers(2012) and The Beach Bum(2019). Korine, who has been drawing since childhood, conceives of his “Twitchy” character as an imaginary companion—a ghost that accompanies him on a psychogeographic tour of Miami. Often presented as a golem-like figure, it also functions as a surrogate for the artist’s own mischievous personality
