Joshua Citarella (b. 1987, New York) graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2010 and currently lives and works in New York City. Fashion Paintings (2016), show the cosmetic retouching of commercial fashion images once the original photograph has been removed. The immaterial labor of photo retouching is now evidenced as gestural, painterly marks floating atop a canvas surface. The outlines of models' bodies, concealed blemishes and dust spots appear as a ghostly absence, reminding us of a scene that once was. These works elucidate the new tools and descriptive systems of digital images, pulling back the curtain on today's modes of photographic production. He has had solo shows at Higher Pictures, New York (2013, 2015) and Carroll/Fletcher, London (2016). Selected group exhibitions include Planes, BFI, Miami; Figure 8, Clifton Benevento, New York; Mediated Images, Brand New Gallery, Milan, Italy (all 2015); Under Construction: New Positions in American Photography, Fotografiemuseum, Amsterdam, Netherlands and Pioneer Works, New York (2014-15); MOCAtv Presents: A Jogging Screening at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2014). He is organizer of Compression Artifacts (2013), thePSDshow.org (2012) and was a member of the collaborative artist project Jogging. He currently collaborates with Brad Troemel as Ultraviolet Production House.
