    Luisa Caldwell

    Friday, August 29, 2014

    The Apian Way was lined with cypress trees I’m told. Luisa Caldwell, in her Brooklyn studio, is working on something that resembles one of those Roman trees. Biography is a piece of all this. Caldwell’s mother was from Italy and the contemporary and historical culture of the place summons her attention. She speaks the language; […]

    Supports / Surfaces by Nick Van Zanten

    Monday, July 14, 2014

    The French Supports/Surfaces painters of the 1970’s have been woefully overlooked in America, which is especially remarkable given how many young abstract painters seem to be following in their footsteps today. The appropriately named Supports/Surfaces at Canada on Broome St through July 20 aims to fix this. Works hang from the ceiling and sit on […]

    Charles Yuen

    Saturday, May 24, 2014

    The first ‘shot’ you get as you walk down the aisle is the Hyundai Accent. All white plastic with wheels and panels akimbo. The piece was assembled indoors after being cast from its original –a 2006 model– in the short driveway outside. Part, one imagines, performance for the neighbors part concession to the reality of […]

    Ann Shostrom

    Thursday, May 1, 2014

    Ann Shostrom drives –and sews– against the grain. She pursues the reverse commute of the bourgeoisie. Shostrom teaches and maintains her studio in rural Pennsylvania and thus drives back to the city at weekends and summers while others are fleeing to the country. Her studio is a cluttered, rag pickers den where she assembles fabric […]

    Moira Williams

    Sunday, April 13, 2014

    Visiting Moira Williams’ studio requires flexibility. Her studio being, as with increasing numbers of artists, a dispersed site. It, her studio, does have a small geographical presence in a pink-painted room in Bushwick NY, but thereafter the studio trails across her computer’s hard drive, the Milky Way, walks through Brooklyn, Bogota and Barcelona and urban […]

Pop goes the Easel

Pop Art and Its Progeny  at the Lyman Allyn Museum curated by Barbara Zabel by Howard Foster There was never anything “gnarled” in Pop art. There was no matted undergrowth. Though there may or may not have been a rebuke of advertising, there was still always an unctuous mirroring of its perfect surfaces. And more […]

Catherine Mosley at AIR Gallery

AGENT FROM THE OUTLANDS CATHERINE MOSLEY ———— NEW WORK “Sometimes reality is too complex for oral communication.” Enter the gravelly teachings of the fascist Alpha 60 computer, following the musical dragnet of the films opening frames. I am referring, of course, to Jean- Luc Godard’s kooky 1965 fusion of science fiction, pulp, and surrealism — […]
