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.
