Fort Gansevoort’s ‘Fantasy Composites’ exhibition showcases NYPD forensic artist Jason Harvey’s work

It would be a crime to miss this exhibition.

Fort Gansevoort is showing works by NYPD forensic artist Jason Harvey through Jan. 10. The exhibition, “Fantasy Composites,” is inspired by Harvey’s work as a forensic artist.

For the past 10 years, Harvey has worked with victims to sketch the faces of criminal suspects.

“You have to be a good listener and have a certain candor when working with an eyewitness,” Harvey said in a news release. “The process itself is therapeutic — it’s a step in the right direction.”

But this time around, Harvey’s subjects are fictional. The sketches on display incorporate real and imagined facial features to become “hyper real, caricature-like representations of humanity,” according to a news release.
