Dan McCarthy at Anton Kern Gallery October 18th, 2007 - November 21st, 2007
Posted 11/11/07

Dan McCarthy renders his figures in primary colors on a monochrome background, with no attempt to create a space for them to reside. These near life-size paintings and a smaller selection of works on paper in the back gallery make a strong impression with their expressionistic flair and reliance on gesture. The artist’s simple, but virtuoso technique of using luscious dripping and layered washes is employed effectively to create volume. McCarthy’s confidant approach to the human form and his unique rend... [more]

Daphne Fitzpatrick at Bellwether October 11th, 2007 - November 10th, 2007
Posted 10/21/07

You step up and then down an antique fir wooden ramp to enter Daphne Fitzpatrick's show of fastidiously tweaked and salvaged material at Bellwether, but this minor detour is well worth it. A standout piece in the front of the gallery is "Delphin darling follows the ship all the way to port," 2007. Consisting of a series of interlocked sculpted sausages on a metal shelf, snaking their way into a blown glass jar, it is both elegant and witty. Take a seat in her plywood "Sandmand" structure,...

Aleksandra Mir at Mary Boone Gallery - 24th St. September 15th, 2007 - October 27th, 2007
Posted 10/21/07

Aleksandra Mir’s project at Mary Boone gallery in Chelsea, "Newsroom 1986-2000," is at once an homage to New York City and an exercise in collaboration. After scanning over 200 covers at the New York Public Library from the often trashy and sensationalist—not to mention biased—tabloids, the New York Post and the Daily News, Mir and a team of assistants set up shop in Boone’s large Chelsea outpost. On a large table in the gallery they recreate these covers using black Sharpie-brand marke... [more]

Matthew Blackwell at Edward Thorp Gallery September 7th, 2007 - October 13th, 2007
Posted 9/20/07

Matthew Blackwell’s new paintings at Edward Thorp are primal, raw and honest, featuring brutal brushwork and lush colors. Blackwell’s compelling narrative style includes a range of subjects such as our current quagmire in Iraq and the bleak housing situation for residents in large cities. As well, one can find portrayals of an earnest American community going about its business in this time of business as usual. In a landscape of high-contrast hues and dripping, loaded pigment, Blackwell rende... [more]

Raymond Pettibon at David Zwirner- 519 W. 19th September 11th, 2007 - October 20th, 2007
Posted 9/20/07

With the war in Iraq going on its fourth year, and no end in sight, artists increasingly turn their attention on our Vietnam. Raymond Pettibon fills David Zwirner with a large grouping of works on paper, hung salon style, many of which comment on this administration’s disastrous foreign policy. The addition of large dripping text painted directly on the walls sets off each arrangement into distinct sections. Pettibon’s work never comes across as propaganda, but his drawings—often overworked to the point... [more]

Having never stayed at the Chelsea Inn, I can’t vouch for its comfort or cleanliness. It makes you wonder how long a place like this can last, considering the luxury condos and mammoth galleries being erected in the neighborhood. In case you’re tempted to use it as a hook-up place after meeting a willing partner at an opening, be forewarned—NO SHORT STAYS!Chelsea Inn184, 11th Avenue(Corner 23rd Street)New York, NY [more]
