|Brett Baker at Elizabeth Harris: DETAIL of his work's thick, striated surfaces and surprising color shifts|
|Missed his recent show but two paintings hung by the desk at the gallery. |
The red one was equally beautiful with hints of copper, but iPhone couldn't pick it up.
|Josette Urso at Kathryn Markell, a joyous exhibition. Urso's beautiful view in her Bushwick loft inspires her surprising tonal shifts and plays of the brush. I enjoyed the strange, cool color of this painting.|
See another Urso if you scroll down.
|Peter Wayne Lewis, who divides his time between northeast US and Beijing, in the 2012 Beijing Biennial.|
|The real thing at Skoto, also on 20th St. Skoto was a find: it features Jamaican artists' work. |
The vibe was Salon-like, with conversations blooming in all directions, which is why I didn't photograph more.
Lewis works large, sometimes serially and there are also some lovely watercolors in back.
|Inspired by and erudite in jazz, Lewis' marks suggest Chinese ink painting. |
|What in Chinese calligraphy is referred to as a "crossover"--|
the brush jumps over paper to get to the other side of a mark, Lewis achieves with a scraper, it looks like.
|Cora Cohen at Guided by Invoices, at the corner of 21st and 11th. What an absolutely gorgeous show. |
iPhone photos can't do justice to the subtle, swiped surfaces and layers of graphite and oil.
|Josette Urso at Markel: a buoyant snow painting with odd, checkered lozenge shape.|
|Preview of Jennifer Wynne Reeves at BravinLee Programs, a quirky, intimate and beautiful show.|
|Cora Cohen: ruddy painting, with gold and copper notes.|
|Jennifer Wynne Reeves: relishing material.|
|Fearless navigator of all things visceral.|
|She's been working on these paper pieces for a while.|
Raggedy Ann's Foot will need to migrate to a new server. Until then patience is appreciated.
