Gallery Paule Anglim is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings byAndrew Masullo.

For his fourth exhibition at the gallery, Masullo has selected a group of small paintings (most c.16" x 20") as a prescribed installation in Gallery II. The oil paintings on pre-made stretchers are bright abstract compositions with hand-delineated areas of color. His thoughtful approach pays subtle homage to his chosen pantheon of artists: Modigliani, Forrest Bess, 'folk' artists, Vordemberge-Gildewart, Ensor, Augusto Giacometti, Picabia and Florine Stettheimer; yet he puts his faith in the immediacy springing from intuition, chance and 'automatic' creativity:

 "Each (painting) has its own internal clock and I've got no sway with any of them as to when they're done. When working, I may have an idea of what to do next, but I rarely know if that idea is going to be "the big one" or a big fat setback. That's OK, because setbacks, along with worry, doubt, and General Chaos are all valuable tools. ...No matter how much I love looking at a finished picture, it's the finding-my-way-from Chaos-to-terra firma that is at the heart of making things. "

From an interview with Hudson at Feature Gallery, October 2010
