DAVID COHEN on Andrew Forge at Betty Cuningham

Even as vast numbers of dots and sticks accumulated, each mark had to pull its weight. Despite their weird craft, nothing is gratuitous in these highly wrought compositions.

GREG LINDQUIST on Benjamin Edwards at Greenberg Van Doren

In this body of work, acrylic tends to describe the sharp edges of the man-made whereas oil is used transparently and luminously, suggesting an epidermis, a human skin. Here, Edwards’s use of brushstroke reveals the hand of the artist, adding a human presence in contradistinction to the geometric severity of his constructed world.
