Anthony Cudahy weaves imagery culled from photo archives, online platforms, art history, and personal photographs to explore themes of queer identity. His evocative figurative paintings are informed by extensive historical research and image collection. They negotiate feelings of loneliness, isolation, desire, and safety through the lens of the artist’s own narrative.
The artist received a BFA from Pratt Institute, NY in 2011 and completed an MFA at Hunter College, NY in 2020. Cudahy work is currently on view at FLAG Art Foundation, NY (US) as part of the group exhibition, and I will wear you in my heart of heart. Recent and forthcoming solo exhibitions include shows at Hales, New York, NY (US); Semiose Gallery, Paris (FR), and a two-person show at Deli Gallery, Brooklyn, New York (US). In 2017 Dashwood Books released Vigil (RHYTHM) Vigil, a volume of his paintings alongside photographs by his husband Ian Lewandowski, which was featured in the Queering Space exhibition at Alfred University in 2018.
