Watchlist Artist: Patrick Wilson

(Patrick Wilson, Secret, 2012, acrylic on canvas, 49" x 59"; Courtesy of the artist and Marx & Zavattero, San Francisco) Los Angeles painter Patrick Wilson presents a magnificent new body of his brilliantly constructed, abstract acrylic on canvas paintings in his highly anticipated third solo exhibition titled 'Slow Motion Action Painting' at Marx & Zavattero, June 2 – July 14, 2012.

Punctuation of Memory

by E-Slant Team
Marking her fourth solo exhibition with Marx & Zavattero, New York photographer Liséa Lyons debuts a new series of chromogenic prints in an exhibition titled "Lineage", May 23 - July 2, 2009.

I can hardly begin to describe the sensuousness of this exhibit. The felt is almost irresistible to touch, the colors so vibrant... It makes you want to just rub your hands all over a bear's big hairy chest... But the looks on the bear's faces are half despondent, half bored--it seems the party may have ended with a game of hide and seek gone awry.. With such a connection between all the work, this exhibition seems more akin to an installation. And to be honest, it is refreshing to see an exhibit about an aspect of gay culture that is freed from any obvious reference to politics and simpl... [more]
