The Killing Cycle…

Aug. 20 - Dec. 23, 2014


Alfred Leslie

The year 1966 was a turning point for painter and filmmaker Alfred Leslie. That fall, a devastating fire destroyed Leslie’s studio-home and all of its contents. This personal loss, as well as the death only a few months earlier of his close friend and collaborator, poet Frank O’Hara, provided fertile ground for artistic inspiration. The Killing Cycle is a series of constructed narratives that synthesize fact and fiction to describe the beach scene car crash that ended O’Hara’s life. Part personal testimony and part metaphor for loss, these “painted stories” will be exhibited together for the first time in over twenty years.
