    In the year 306 Margaret of Antioch, then aged approximately 15, was brutally and cruelly tortured for refusing to renounce her Christian faith. The narrative of events varies from source to source but typically includes iron combs being used to tear her flesh down to the bone. Returned to her cell by her jailers, after […]

    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 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 […]

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 […]
