Posted 6/26/11

  The Minimal Gesture analyses the continuing influence of Abstract Expressionism in contemporary painting, and its intersection with the major movements that followed that period, in particular Minimalism. A large canvas by Agnes Martin, who considered herself an Abstract Expressionist – although her work is closely aligned with Minimalism – consists of faint, hand-ruled graphite lines on an off-white background. The composition is radically pared down, yet full of a sense of imperfection... [more]

Christopher Wool at Corbett vs. Dempsey October 21st, 2010 - November 27th, 2010
Posted 11/15/10

Christopher Wool grew up in Chicago, but he made his career in New York. And like any good New York abstract painter he is a fan of jazz. “Sound on Sound”, at Corbett vs. Dempsey gets its name from a recording made on an old Sound on Sound reel-to-reel portable tape recorder by underground jazz legend, Joe McPhee. Both Wool and Corbett vs. Dempsey are huge fans of McPhee, and the occasion of the exhibition marks an opportunity to issue the previously unreleased 1968 recording and stage... [more]

‘The choreography of mediatised reality’   --Will Self, ‘The Bounds of Inner Space’ Gagosian Gallery Catalogue 2010 We are not living in the real world, but merely exist in a virtual dimension, held like flies in aspic by shifting screens and filters which drip feed sensations of experience: violence, pleasure, the monstrous, the curious. These filters are precisely created episodes of a world theatre, a continuous and totally involving soap opera. ‘CRASH: Homage to... [more]

Posted 8/7/09

          When is a painting not a painting? An exhibition at Simon Lee poses this conundrum with a selection of enigmatic works by gallery artists. The premise of the show is found in the word accrochage, the principle of hanging or coupling works in the tradition of a summer exhibition. However this carries a further twist; on closer examination none of the paintings is a proper painting, in conventional terms of expressive handwork and composition. The show starts with the veteran conceptua... [more]

Posted 12/1/08

The current exhibition of catalogues entitled Fama and Fortune Bulletin at 2nd Cannons is sexy. Partially because of the design: brown, recycled paper, soft covers with uniformed layout and matte pages. Somewhat because of their presentation: aligned on four white shelves with warm spotlights.  But mostly because of their content: every issue one or two artists are invited to design, write and format the contents of the publication.

Degree Zero is a small, somewhat terse collection of mostly abstract, mostly painting-related pieces by seven artists, all but one of whom is represented by only one work. This amount of restraint only makes the viewer work harder to connect the dots, and the results are very rewarding. Close inspection of the show reveals that while there isn’t a theme, as such, two elements connect the initially very disparate work. The first element is that all of the work in the show has an uncertain relationship between painting and p... [more]
