    I accepted that these were paintings that are meant to be looked into, not to be looked at. They can’t be taken in at a glance. My eyes have to adjust to them before I can really see them.

    I’m not trying to trick anyone. I’m combining different visual experiences together to construct an image in the same way the sense of continuous space is something that we construct from the bits and pieces of our perceptions.

    For me painting materializes the immaterial. I’ve got to literally realize ideas to make sense of them.

  • Fish Tank

    Saturday, February 11, 2017

    Curated by Fintan Boyle and Matt Freedman for Romanov Grave. LIU, Brooklyn, Humanities Gallery, 2016. From the catalogue essay: …Owning and displaying fish has a long pedigree then. It is a particular subset of the culture of display. Roman elites showed off their barbells to their guests. A restricted, narrow audience one imagines. In the […]

    What a World

    Saturday, February 11, 2017

    The individual works of art in “What a World, What a World” hold together in such a seamless narrative that walking into the exhibition felt like dropping into a world ready-made.

    Steve DeFrank

    Saturday, February 4, 2017

    Steve DeFrank is a painter who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He unapologetically embraces all the formal skills of object making that engages old-fashioned, soul-baring individuality with absurdity, acknowledging the pleasure, pain, and awkwardness of being human.

    Sunday, October 16, 2016

    An Interview with Janet Goleas – Christopher French creates minimalist abstractions infused with memory, light and a degree of perception that extends beyond sight. His radiant geometries reference a landscape of light and shadows in precise compositions. Layering pigment in thin veils, French crisscrosses shafts of color as they traverse the image field in crystalline tonalities.

Jim Nutt “Trim” and Other Works

Jim Nutt’s current show of paintings and drawings at David Nolan resembles nothing so much as portraits, from observation, of the artist Orlan. I suspect this observation will not be distressing to either of the artists in question. Nutt has been torquing the represented body for a little longer than Orlan has been using representations […]

She: Marina Abromovic at the Atrium of the Museum of Modern Art ( The Artist is Present )

Well it might be a stretch.  She must think those people standing and walking around are looking.  She’s kind of still there.  All those people thinking she’s got something — just looking straight ahead.  That long dress.  That little plinth she’s standing on.  That kind of white greasepaint.  That pharaoh getup. Wait a minute.  No […]

Ars longa, divorce brutale.

I rode the subway. To see Robert & Ethel Scull: Portrait of a Collection that is. To have stepped onto the curb at Acquavella gallery, 59th just off 5th, and paid a cab fare would have been, well, tasteless. The Sculls have long been positioned as the Ur collectors of contemporary art in New York. […]

Jennifer Cohen at Salon 94

JENNIFER COHEN at Salon 94 Apparently, ballet originated as a dance interpretation of fencing. And Jennifer Cohen’s clever merging of ballet imagery (she has a background in dance) and sculptural tropes is indeed a series of feints and parries. At first glance, this body of work seems simply to valorize and memorialize, with “souvenirs” such […]
