Jamian Juliano-Villani Work from “Gamblers Choice” at Retrospective, Hudson. “Juliano-Villani’s recent work renders hyperaware chaotic scenes in a bright, rich palette.

Sebastian Black

Sebastian Black Work from his oeuvre. “One could say that the press release, considered as a medium, meets its match – for fraughtness, for derision inspiring valedictorianism, for metonymic fidelity to the churning undercurrents of value, taste, power, etc – in the medium of painting. Fine. One could also say that saying that is the cheapest price of admission […]

Guyton/Walker

Guyton/Walker Work from their oeuvre. “According to Guyton and Walker, the show is a continuation of their artistic processes, both in seclusion and together.

Antek Walczak

  Antek Walczak Work from “New Transbohemian States” at Real Fine Arts, New York. “The series of oil paintings presented for this exhibition depict a number of state transition diagrams.

Mitsuko Miwa

Mitsuko Miwa Works from Rendition at Longhouse Projects. “Rendition focuses on multiplicity within the medium of painting. In one body of work, Miwa offers seemingly typical “abstract paintings”—bands of color that are derived from stacks of nameless books, providing a pictorial dilemma, in which the viewer is asked to read but cannot. In another body […]

Niels Trannois

Niels Trannois Work from B (hands in a chinese cookie jar) at Valentin. “Niels Trannois’s paintings can be understood as fragments of the fictional scenario of what could happen if reality were to absent itself, no doubt the submerged side of a world in abeyance overrun by figurative resurgences, ready to hide away or be […]
