Los Angeles Times Reviews Drucker and Ernst at Luis De Jesus Gallery in Culver City

Los Angeles Times art critic Christopher Knight devoted a recent column to the new show by photographers and filmmakers Zackary Drucker and Rhys Ernst, "Relationship," at the Luis De Jesus Gallery in Culver City.

Explaining that the show features two videos and 62 photographs that were featured in the Whitney Biennial this year, Knight compares the work to Cathy Opie and calls the works "capital-R Romantic portraits - often dreamy, preternaturally still and imbued with clear and gentle light - of one or the other, or of the couple together" over the course of nearly six years. "Further complicating "Relationship,"" adds Knight, "is its status as a record of a transgender couple. Their bodies are transitioning in opposite directions (for Drucker from male to female, and for Ernst from female to male)."

Continues Knight:

There is something almost Pre-Raphaelite about the tone and feeling of the Drucker-Ernst display. Both noble and, in the best sense, moralizing, it offers the self-reflective pleasures of a secret society unveiled.
