David Drebin, ‘I Love You Too’, 2013, Waddington's

From the Catalogue:
“I wanted to branch out form being a “photographer” to being a multidisciplinary artist showcasing multiple art forms with similar themes yet different messages.” – David Drebin

David Drebin’s I Love You Too, (2013), is an example of the artist’s ongoing explorations into alternative media. Primarily known for his iconic photographs of “femmes fatales” posed against dramatic cityscapes and sweeping, panoramic landscapes, his drive in new directions serves to support and expand his established themes. His works in neon “…illuminate the secret thoughts and veiled aspirations of the femmes fatales who inhabit the elusive world of his iconic photographs.”

About David Drebin

Love stories and landscapes are at the foundation of David Drebin's panoramas, portraits, and neon sculptures. His monograph Love and Other Stories (2007) features solitary women in urban tableaux—high-rise apartments buildings and terraces, freeway overpasses and hotel rooms. Dressed alternately in bikinis, evening gowns, and negligees, the women appear to be in various stages of a love affair. They pout while lying on couches and ascend grand staircases; their legs emerge from doorways and car doors, their concealed upper bodies assumedly engaged in passionate embraces. Drebin's cityscapes present sweeping views of famous locales such as Jerusalem, Paris, and New York and incorporate both built and natural features. In San Francisco Dusk (2010), an illuminated grid of buildings reaches toward the misty blue horizon of the Pacific Ocean.
