Famous Accountants is very pleased to present In My Secrecy I Was Real, an exhibit of Randal Wilcox’s “saliva paintings.” This series of self-portraits, watercolor pencils and painted saliva on paper, explore a psychological frontier of the self. In them Wilcox projects himself into a variety of disturbed and troubling situations, creating images that are reminiscent of both Pedro Bell and Leon Golub.
Randal Wilcox is an artist and writer born and currently based in New York. His work has been exhibited at The Studio Museum in Harlem, Artists Space, Anthology Film Archives and is in the collections of The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and the Museum of New Art. In 2009, Wilcox participated in the world premiere of John Duncan’s “The Grateful”, a piece which was included in a 2-day event curated by Mike Kelly and Mark Beasley for PERFORMA 09.
