For the series “Pas de Deux,” based on the artist’s large-scale 1983 painting of the same title, Katz created five prints depicting ‘80s art-world couples: David Salle and Janet Leonard, Danny Moynihan and Laura Faber, Francesco and Alba Clemente, Vicki Hudspith and Wally Tuberville, and Red Grooms and Liz Ross. All of the women wear coats by the designer Norma Kamali, while their male counterparts are sharply dressed in suits.
Katz’s prints, despite their clean lines and immaculate surface, are unexpectedly spontaneous. Alex Katz has a certain readiness to enlarge, fragment and edit his celebrated subjects; his work is characterized by scale, by space, by color, and by simplification.
