    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 […]

    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.

    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.

  • Christopher French

    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.

Kim Jones at Pierogi

Allow me a moment’s nostalgia. Perhaps it isn’t so strange how accustomed we all became to the Mudman. It was 1980’s New York; New York then as opposed to New York now. There were still transvestite bikers, and the guy doing the ceramics thing all over the East Village. There was the Duckman wandering lower […]

Mia Westerlund, Sculptures

Although many aspects of Westerlund’s oeuvre employ a minimalist aesthetic—large holistic shapes often serially repeated (more of this later)—in these new pedestal-based forms she seems to allude to an earlier Abstract Expressionist mode. In imminent danger of toppling, they convey an asymmetrical precariousness that recalls Agostini, Roszak, Ferber , rather than Judd or Andre.
