The Best of Gallery Walk in Chelsea (May 2015)

David Salle’s new paintings are characterized by both immediacy and complexity; their vibrant color and highly energized, dynamic compositions display a marked evolution from his most recent exhibition, Ghost Paintings, shown at Skarstedt’s Upper East Side gallery in 2013. Salle’s Late Product Paintings can be seen as both revisiting and providing an extension to his […]

Paul Kolker – The Droste Effect at Kolker Gallery

Reza Aramesh at Leila Heller Gallery (Victims of Military Oppression in Art)

Iranian-born artist Reza Aramesh’s work has not just explored issues of inhumanity, cruelty and suffering (based on images from the popular press), but, to me, has also deeply questioned the extent to which the visual arts have attempted, throughout history, to even acknowledge issues of human suffering. Indeed, in his approach to depicting victims of […]

His beat is Pop Geometry, a form that encompasses everything from collage to oil on canvas and which is devised by channeling everyone from Dadaists to Diebenkorn.

Light and Airy at the New Whitney Museum

I have always looked forward to seeing art at the Whitney, especially during the Whitney Biennials, but honestly, I always felt claustrophobically exhausted at the end of each visit. The “New” Whitney will take care of all those feelings. The space is expansive with light pouring in from huge windows. Many outdoor spaces and gardens […]

Engaged by the Word: Donatello’s Stuff at The Museum of Biblical Art

Your priest or minister may not have told you this, but many religious scholars believe that Paul of Tarsus hijacked Christianity. At one time in the very, very early stages of the Christian religion there were actually two rival groups of Christians (this is even before the Gnostics reared their heads). There was a group […]
