|Trenton Doyle Hancock at James Cohan: a textural relative of the stylized forms in |
Dana Schutz's show at Petzel earlier this year
|Hancock, tactile and wild|
|Surfaces are dense and surprising--hard to know what's on top and beneath. They are a pleasure to behold.|
|A fine blob on a scrambled pink and yellow ground.|
|Small kitty painting by Hancock in Cohan's front room.|
|Keltie Ferris - a handsome show at Mitchell, Inness & Nash|
This is featured on many blogs, including those linked here, lower right.
|Soft, sprayed color with a small, digitized mark on top.|
|Barnaby Furnas at Marianne Boesky: this room looked fantastic.|
|Jonah and the Whale--see Jennifer Wynne Reeves below for another version of the Biblical tale.|
Furnas' palette is so icy and cold, perfect for winter ocean tales.
|Drawings by Furnas on a wood panel wall. Straightforward like the paintings, strange mix of Leger and David Bates among others.|
|David Humphrey, this painting in Fredrick and Freiser's back room.|
Like Sue Williams in a way--and then not.
|David Brody just reviewed the show for Artcritical.com|
|Color is skewed on my iPhone but I did love this painting, particularly the caput mortum with brilliant blue and yellow.|
|Stephan Mueller at Lennon, Weinberg|
|A most gorgeous example of Mueller, though the crimson surround is compromised by iPhone.|
Makes me think of the Met's Matisse armchair painting center of three where the model's arm becomes part of the chair, framing her body.
|Jennifer Wynne Reeves at Stux, group show: another Jonah story on coated paper, with a surprising array of textures. |
Check her page on FB for better images--these again, are iPhone.
|Jennifer Wynne Reeves: another pictorial hybridizer. |
These framed works are hard to capture straight on but they are wonderful paintings!
|Whale threatening to devour one of Reeve's emblematic paint-figures, with which she has worked for many years.|
Reeves is a Guggenheim Fellow this year.
|Annie Attridge at Asya Geisberg Gallery|
|This joyous porcelain work summoned memories of See's Candy Easter Eggs|
...with picture windows revealing narratives of a sugar animal kingdom
|An adult version of same replete with wood paneling. |
The artist also showed drawings and prints of wood grain and the sculpture.
|Last gallery of the day: Gary Snyder, featuring the wall hangings of Al Loving.|
|This museum-quality show will be extended yet again, which is great news for everyone. I first saw Al Loving's work at David Reed's studio, in an exhibition of work from the 1970s after the High Times, Hard Times show.|
