- Marcus Harvey at Mary Boone by Chris Moylan
Those familiar with the work of Marcus Harvey primarily through his piece at the Sensation show will be in for a sensation of a different sort at Mary Boone Gallery. "Myra" (1995) employed children's handprints in an image of a child murderer. No portraits of serial killers here; the gallery is dominated by three large (61/2 x 16') still lives of dildos, vibrators, and the detritus of what is known in England as an "Ann's Summer Party." whitecube.com
Born in Leeds in 1963, Harvey was one of a group of artists who graduated from Goldsmith's College, London, in the late 1980s. In his first solo show in London, held at White Cube in 1994, Harvey exhibited paintings also based on photographs. guardian.co.uk

In his first one-man show for six years, Marcus Harvey showed five new pieces at the Mary Boone Gallery in Chelsea, including two archly contemporary still lives of the detritus left after an Ann Summers party.
