We Love to Watch: Beautiful, Intimate Art Explores Voyeurism

We are all voyeurs, but it may be artists who are best at being voyeurs, because they’re able to take their desire to spy and to watch, and make it into a study of humanity. In the group exhibit Voyeur, which is in its last week at New York’s Lyons Wier Gallery, artists peek into the lives of others, creating startlingly personal works that walk the line between curiosity and violation. Lyons Wier gave us an exclusive sample of the work; click through to preview Voyeur, and if you’re in the city, make plans to visit the gallery before the exhibit closes on the 19th.
