The Fahey/Klein Gallery debuts Alex Stoddard: INSEX, a solo exhibition of works by emerging artist Alex Stoddard. This exhibition is a celebration of Stoddard’s debut publication and marks the artist’s first cohesive collection of work – and first exhibition at the Fahey/Klein Gallery. The gallery held an artist reception on June 23, 2022, but the exhibition will remain on view through August 6, 2022. This is a beautiful exhibit!

The photographs from INSEX explores the parallels between metamorphosis in the natural world and human coming-of-age. Through staged, highly stylized images, Stoddard invites viewers into a colorfully dark world of budding sexuality and crawling insects. This series of previously unreleased images paints a surreal picture of adolescence in a glorious frenzy of buzzing hormones and sprouting wings. The works on display were created over a span of (5) years in locations around the world. Each constructed scene features a youthful subject, often Stoddard himself, in a state of change or paired with a many-legged counterpart.

On view: June 23, 2022 – August 6, 2022
