ALEXANDER TINEI - Dark Pearl,
Ana Cristea Gallery

Alexander Tinei is best known for his portraits of men, women, and children who bear the marks of their alienation in the form of blue tattoos. Drawing from his childhood in Soviet Moldova, Tinei explores questions of identity and authenticity. Like the pair in Fred & Fred (2011), the figures in Tinei’s paintings pose awkwardly and self-consciously against a background of dark, muted colors, their forearms, necks, or faces streaked in blue. A number of Tinei’s subjects are masked, making their self-effacement explicit.
