As I was in Chelsea, I checked out the currrent exhibit at Jonathan LeVine. Despite my strong prejudice against this type of pop surrealism, I was somewhat intrigued by Erik Mark Sandberg's eerie portraits that -- according to the press release -- focus "on the relationship between projected idealized archetypes and their unattainable emulation." Now -- that I can dig!
Educator, writer and curator. Poetry Teacher of the Year, 1988, awarded by Poets House and NYC Board of Education. I co-authored three books back in the 90's -- two of which were cited as best Books for the Teen Age by the New York Public Library. (The Place I Call Home: Voices and Faces of Homeless Teens and Jerusalem Mosaic: Young Voices from the Holy City.) Both books have also been cited by the Library of Congress for their "strong and honest voice of the young adult." I also authored A to Z : The Book of Rap & Hip Hop Slang -- with entries that have since been cited by dozens of dictionaries.
