Epic Miniatures

Seda-Reeder writes that “the traditional practice of miniature creation is applied to contemporary non-miniature works. And as demonstrated by artists like Ambreen Butt in Realms of Intimacy, the effect can be equal parts begging for close inspection and stepping back for the gestalt.” Read the full article here: Epic Miniatures

Carrie Moyer: Belladonna Treatment

Sutphin writes: ” Moyer’s in-your-face compositional structures influenced by her engagement with agitprop and interest in Constructivist design give way to a kind of ambiguous space that feels extra terrestrial. These paintings are slow reads, petri dishes of biomorphic form suspended in agar. They reward patience and curiosity, no one-liners here.” Read the full article […]

Alexander writes: “The surfaces are rich accumulations of interactions and encounters over time, with thicker and thinner, oily and matte areas mingling into a dusky soup that is at once ethereal and utterly physical.

Generations of Color

Haber writes: “Both [artists] work in acrylic and let it flow, big time. One can contemplate its color and other pleasures, or one can dive in to look for representation. With Moyer that means women and other creatures, with Ronnie Landfield landscape. Neither rests on irony, and yet both are looking back. Only looking back […]

Robert Schwartz @ Babcock Galleries

Naves writes: “Schwartz can be fairly neatly fitted into the tradition of Magical Realism, a loosely aligned group of American painters- Jared French is one; Paul Cadmus, another- drawn to enigmatic narratives, hushed symbolism, painstaking craft and the male nude, both as historical touchstone (cf. Michelangelo) and object of adoration.” Read the full article here: […]

Being “Under Water” in New Abstract Drawing

Being “Under Water” in New Abstract Drawing It was only when I finished this new abstract drawing and looked at it afterwards that I got a sense of being “under water” from it. I began making bold blue and green lines using the broad tips of calligraphy pens to vary the thickness. For some reason, […]
