Robert Longo Rick, from Men in Cities, 1994 is a striking moment capturing a businessman in the midst of a wild danced move. His suit jacket flies open, his feet spread to brace himself, head thrown back, and arms moving freely. The energy of his motion is fully captured, depicted through sleek black-and-white forms. The black of his jacket melts in with his pants and shoes, making his body a dynamic silhouette filling the pristine white surface.
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.
