Joyce Korotkin's series Synergistic Adversaries are life-sized portraits of art world characters, from emerging to established, that document a cross-section of the New York art world in the dawn of the 21st century. Included are artists, dealers, museum directors, curators, collectors and critics — from those who create art to those who promote, sell, support, document and ultimately preserve it — all of whom are of equal importance within the synergistic but highly competitive circle of the art world. Comprised of individual portraits, each originated from life sittings, the series as a whole is a portrait of the era. Like a time capsule, it resonates with an essence of the moment right now, but will, as careers evolve and time passes, become redolent with the scent of art history.
