The dandy's beauty consists above all in the cold appearance which comes from the unshakable
resolution not to be moved; one might say the latent fire which makes itself felt, and which might,
but does not wish to, shine forth.
Christopher Pusey and Luis Accorsi are pleased to announce the exhibition of "The Dandy's New York",
February 7 through March 4, 2012 at Dorian Grey Gallery, 437 East 9th Street, New York City. The
gallery will host an Opening Reception Tuesday, February 7 from 6 – 9 PM. Please RSVP. For additional
information, please contact us at 516‐244‐4126.
Photographer Molua Muldown and multi‐media artist Lisa Pan reveal the authentic man behind New
York’s celebrated and enigmatic dandy, Patrick McDonald. A series of environmental portrait
photographs, mixed media collages and Patrick’s own poetry illustrate the East Village life and ethos of
this unconventional artist. In this series, we look through the eyes of a man who has been described as
a New York City living landmark and a walking work of art. Historically, New York City has been a haven
for unique artists such as W. H. Auden, Quentin Crisp and Klaus Nomi. For over two decades, Patrick
has been a muse and model for some of our most celebrated painters, photographers and illustrators.
In our rapidly changing city, with it’s ever increasingly endangered environment for artists, Patrick’s
uncompromising life simply inspires.
