A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Michael Lindsay-Hogg

Galerie Pixi, Marie Victoire Poliakoff Paris Art

If you want to get hifalutin about it, his full handle, complete with title, is Sir Michael Edward Lindsay-Hogg, 5th Baronet—an impressive mouthful. Known to us more modestly as Michael Lindsay-Hogg, he made his imprint as a film and stage director who placed himself at the service of the material, however volatile and unruly, and let the action breathe within the frame. But it is as a painter that Lindsay-Hogg’s pictorial eye, untethered by the imperatives of script and production, has found freer reign to express its own hunches and whims. His solo and group portraits employ madcap colors, comic peculiarities, and slightly-off body positionings that cast a spell somewhere between dream and cartoon. —James Wolcott
