Like an ominous circus clown, Patrick Lundeen's work rides the line between the lighthearted and the psychologically dark. Following in the traditions of craft and the carnivalesque, the Canadian artist’s paintings and installations are colorful in every sense of the word, but behind the decorative surface he projects something akin to the inner world of a conflicted inner child, notes from the suppressed unconscious. One might have left his recent solo exhibition at Mike Weiss gallery either la... [more]

The walls in Liz Nielsen’s Bushwick studio are adorned floor to ceiling with prints, demonstrating the scope and evolution of her work. With influences ranging from Walead Beshty to Ellsworth Kelly, Nielsen’s work touches upon a wide array of interests; color field painting, collage, ancient light from outer space, the mechanics of the human eye, and the found urban landscape are just some of the preoccupations informing her practice. Nielsen admits she spends significant time putting up and taking do... [more]

Josh Faught at Lisa Cooley June 21st, 2012 - August 24th, 2012
Posted 7/7/12

On a stifling summer evening on the Lower East Side, the smell of Josh Faught’s current exhibition will reach the viewer before she even sees the work. The warm and muggy waft conjures a romantic image of Josh Faught, the Craftsman, in some dark, sweet studio surrounded by vats of bubbling beeswax and natural dyes, with battered strings of hand-woven hemp and wool strewn about the stiff fresh wood of a constantly clanking loom. The smell is that of craft and kitsch. Like a grandmother’s basemen... [more]

Nicole Eisenman at Koenig & Clinton May 24th, 2012 - June 30th, 2012
Posted 6/1/12

There are over seventy woodcuts, etchings, lithographs, and monotypes on view in Nicole Eisenman’s current solo exhibition at Leo Koenig, Inc. In addition to making clear the prolific nature of Eisenman’s practice, with this throng of works (and approximately fifty more recently installed in the now closed 012 Whitney Biennial), Eisenman hits the viewer over the head with a simple, yet challenging fact: She is a figure painter. Perhaps given the entire history of art, and given that challenges in... [more]

Group Exhibition at MVSEVM June 5th, 2010 - July 4th, 2010
Posted 6/14/10

Walking down California Avenue, I see a red carpet stretched out like a lapping tongue from Mvsevm’s front door. A mylar flag, ,Vidi,, [sic] by Brookhart Jonquil, is suspended from the second story window of the gallery and flaps in the wind with the hard crinkle of metalized nylon. Up the cattywampus stairs to the second floor and through the door, the first thing I notice in the gallery is a monitor flickering on the far side of the main room. Already, “Exhibition 7.06052010” has a pl... [more]
