MARC JANCOU CONTEMPORARY WISHES YOU A VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING
Roe Ethridge (b.1969, Miami, Florida, USA) is a commercial and Fine Art photographer. He received his BFA from the Atlanta College of Art (1995). Ethridge now lives and works in New York City, NY.
Blurring the lines between commercial and Fine Art photography Ethridge creates images that are simultaneously generic and intimate, often treading between humor and cynicism. Exploring the plasticity of photography, looking at how images can be repeated and recontextualised to create a new visual experience, Ethridge often uses already published images, such as outtakes from his own commercial work and tear sheets from retail catalogues, as the subject matter for his installations, photographic books and large-format prints. His images refuse to conform to a single narrative, juxtaposing the banal, the personal, the sometimes tender and the sometimes bleak, like the images of rotting leftovers, with the glamour of his editorial images.
In 2020, Ethridge participated in New Visions, Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Hovikodden, Norway. From 2016 to 2017, the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, hosted the first comprehensive survey of Ethridge’s work in the United States. Other solo exhibitions include: Shelter Island, FOAM, Amsterdam, 2016, Le Consortium, Dijon, France, 2012, traveled to Museum Leuven, Belgium, 2012. Works of his are part of the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Museum of Modern Art, New York, SFMoMA, San Francisco, S.M.A.K., Ghent, Tate Modern, London, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, among others.
