|Barbara Rossi at the New Museum. Acrylic on two-sided plexi.
|Rossi, Imagst and SAIC Professor, showing works from the 70s in the exhibitions space on the ground floor.
|These gleam and it is hard to get the color, but Rossi's love for Indian painting is clear. She authored a book on the subject in 2000. See the link here: http://www.amazon.com/From-Ocean-Painting-Popular-Paintings/dp/019511194X
|Not only an incredible eye, mind and hand, but a fabulous person and teacher. A bow to you, Barbara Rossi.
|At Fergus McCaffrey, Sadamasa Motonaga.
|Motonaga was a member of the Gutai group.
|In addition to these airbrush and acrylic paintings he wrote children's books!
|This is work he made in New York when he visited in the 1970s.
|The show is not aesthetically as focused as presented so far: many works are shown together.
|But these airbrush characters are favorites.
|Frank Owen at Nancy Hoffman
|Owen works in Keene, NY. His studio there is palatial; I visited this summer. He is an aficionado and expert with acrylic paint.
|This new work shows a slipping away from his fealty to the grid.
|Alexi Worth interviewed Owen for the Brooklyn Rail. Read it here:
|Simon Hantai (1992-2008), "Blancs," at Kasmin.
|These are canvases that have been folded, and the exterior of the fold painted with acrylic.
|They are then unfolded to create patterns.
|Consequently the texture of each painting is rippled, raw and topographical with respect to the process of its making.
|There was a show of his "pliages" at Muchnin earlier this spring.
|Mary Jones watercolor from 2008, in the exhibition "Beyond Decoration: Identity, Expression and Adornment in Art," at Hudson Guild, organized by Jim Furlong.
|Early indications of painterly surfaces in Jones' current Xray portraits (previous post): exuberant splashes, the shift between photographic image and paint, doubling the image in ways.
|Also, a halo effect from spray paint in subsequent works.
|Mary Jones, detail
|In the same show, technological shards by Gabriel J. Schuldiner.
|He trademarked these works as hybridsculpturalpaintings.
|Excessive surfaces - when to stop?
|Caroll Dunham's exhibition at Barbra Gladstone
|The X painting
|Reams of drawings showing how he got there
|An exhibition about process
|As well as surface
|Echoed shapes, rendered like drawings
|Often including drawing
|A lovely, self-contained landscape by Caroll Dunham
|Last call: Beatriz Milhazes at Cohan (Chelsea)
|Blunt crazy surfaces that are literally painted and collaged together
|The work is dense, direct
|And at Ed Thorpe, a lovely group exhibition, Receptive Fields.
This is Sara Faux, fresh from Yale, MFA 2015
|Detail - crazy and lovely shifts
|Sarah Faux, eye painting
|From Tom McGlynn's recently closed exhibition "Minimax" at Bullet Space.
I did not know that Don Voisine painted on styrofoam surfaces as well as wood , and it thrills me to see these pristine compositions on such quotidian grounds.
|In the front of the gallery's three rooms, buoyant work by Mary McDonnell, a veteran painter heretofore unknown to me.
|Humorously playing with several Tom McGlynn paintings behind.
|A photogram by Tenesh Webber, in which the center becomes a void, exploded.
