Eric Rhein: Lifelines

Text by Paul Michael Brown, Mark Doty, Eric Rhein.

"River (self-portrait with Russell Sharon, Delaware Water Gap)," 1994, is reproduced from 'Eric Rhein: Lifelines.'

Commemorating a crisis: the first monograph on Eric Rhein, poetical chronicler of the AIDS epidemic in photos, drawings and assemblages

This is the first book on the work of American artist Eric Rhein (born 1961), whose career has spanned four decades. This unique monograph-memoir features intimate photographs, taken between 1989 and 2012. The self-portraits and images of friends and lovers correspond to the period spanning Rhein’s HIV diagnosis, his subsequent near death and his experience of a renewed sense of vitality. New York Times critic Holland Cotter wrote of Rhein’s work: “the combination of art and craft, delicacy and resiliency, feminine and masculine, is exquisitely wrought and is, as it should be, seductive but disturbing.”

As a personal response to the AIDS crisis, Rhein’s compelling portraits highlight tenderness and care as life-saving instincts.

Included are related bodies of work: delicate assemblages and wire drawings, often serving as memorials for fallen friends. Rhein's photography, wire drawings, sculpture and watercolors honor love, touch, connection to nature, and familial history. Rhein mines collective and personal narratives, formulating pieces that are at once poetic and documentarian. Mark Doty and Paul Michael Brown contribute essays.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The Body

Tim Murphy

Beautiful young men, sick but not visibly so, wrapped naked in each other’s arms. Fragile little sculptures composed of wire, buttons, jewels, and other found objects. And penises—lots and lots of penises, most in a state of peaceful repose. All of that is to be found in Lifelines, a new collection of about 30 years of work from Kentucky-bred, longtime New York City–based artist Eric Rhein, 59, who nearly died of AIDS in the mid-’90s before the protease treatment revolution brought him, along with so many others (if not all), back to life and health.

Monograph as memoir in Eric Rhein's poetic 'Lifelines'

Monograph as memoir in Eric Rhein's poetic 'Lifelines'

"Internal Bloom" (2005) is reproduced from Eric Rhein: Lifelines, a new release this week. The first monograph on the artist, Lifelines collects evocative, sometimes erotic and othertimes bittersweet black-and-white self-portraits and portraits of friends and lovers alongside wire drawings, sculptural works, and delicate mixed media collages. "My art voices the course of AIDS—speaking names—telling our stories," Rhein writes. "Art-making opens channels to wisdom, communication and healing. The history of my survival and the stories of my friends who died are embodied in the objects I create. Shell-shocked as I am, I have a renewed sense of future." continue to blog
