wendy white

Wendy White, an artist known for such things as “multiple canvases configured to read as a whole, aggressive line work, acrid colors, and a generous helping of black paint” has a show opening tonight at Leo Koenig, Inc. Her work is pretty rad.

huma bhabha

Huma Bhabha’s work is “often described as masks and totems in the state of decay” that “evoke emotional and psychological complexities.” Learn more at an artist talk she will be giving at Columbia University’s Prentis Hall.

karel funk

Karel Funk is a painter who challenges the “narrative of realist portrait painting” by manipulating his subjects until they become “channels for the amorphous color fields, shadow and light interplay that is typical of Flemish and renaissance painting.” His show at 303 Gallery further exemplifies these ideas.

amy sillman

Amy Sillman’s show at Sikkema Jenkins “features a range of new work across mediums, including large and mid-scale paintings, two different suites of drawings, and a new edition of her one-dollar ‘zine The O-G.” I had forgotten how much I enjoy her work.
