    Lee Boroson

    Saturday, November 21, 2015

    Lee Boroson’s work presents a nuanced take on the idea of nature. For the artist, “landscape” is positioned between man-made cultural constructs and wilderness. To achieve this, Boroson creates large-scale immersive installations, which emulate “natural” experiences for his viewers, based on the most ineffable elemental forces in nature — from air, fog, and smoke, to […]

    New York City, Central Park. Four animals, a horse, a goat, a lion and perhaps a Dalmatian, make their way as a team, seeming to rappel without ropes, across a rocky outcrop of 450 million year old schist rock. The blocking of the figures evokes the dance of death scene from Bergman’s The Seventh Seal. […]

    Question: On why I am not a gestural painter, or, am I? Answer: A gesture is one because it represents something, because it is concerned with a meaning. GESTURES, Vilem Flusser, Univerity of Minnesota Press, 2014, p 4 In my experience everything visible in an abstract painting establishes meaning within the context of the painting. […]

    Heide Fasnacht

    Wednesday, September 9, 2015

    Heide Fasnacht has shown an abiding interest in states of instability. These concepts have been explored through drawings, large-scale sculptures, photo-based work, and prints. The aftereffects of historical occurrences (iconoclasm), risk economics (implosions) and geological processes (earthquakes & implosions) are revealed in fracturing and damage.  Deforming and reforming reveals fissures: damage and contortions on the […]

    Question: I would like someone to ask me why, in an art world that loves fashion, entertainment and spectacle, and in an age that loves movies and social media, I keep on painting small abstract paintings.

Hands are well known for picking noses and pockets, giving fingers, reaching across oceans and the like. In the 1960s some were making peace signs. In 1968 one of Richard Serra’s was catching lead.

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 […]
