Robert Longo Frank & Glenn, from Men in the Cities, 1991 features the dynamic forms of two sharply-dressed men, pulling and pushing at one another, caught in a moment of amused roughhousing that is strikingly contrasted with their outward image. Their black suits melt into each other, combining the two even as their energetic hands and faces move away and around. The striking composition and the commonplace subjects lit up by their playful movement give the work a remarkable force that’s further strengthened by the graphic black and red color scheme.
Robert Longo’s Men in Cities series captures the well-dressed business professionals of New York, frozen in moments of rock-star dance poses, creating an intriguing juxtaposition of the rising yuppie culture of the 80s with the flummoxed and energetic spirit of the changing urban times. Originally conceived as a series of graphite and charcoal drawings based on photos Longo took, these fascinating black and white works are highly evocative and eye-catching.
