Featured item from THE LIST: Gerard Mossé at Marlborough Gallery


If the opening scene from 2001: A Space Odyssey were painted by an Abstract Expressionist the result might resemble a Gerard Mossé with his typical hi-tech totem pulsating with ethereal, other worldly light. The North African-born New Yorker has a preternatural capacity to enlist color to the service of such electric glow one is tempted to check if…

Featured item from THE LIST: Bianca Beck: Body Double at Rachel Uffner, opening Sunday, 6-8PM


In his 2011 artcritical review of this artist’s debut show, David Cohen wrote: “There is something deliciously grubby about the paintings and sculptures of Bianca Beck. She favors distressed, punctured, encrusted surfaces, an earthy, at times visceral palette and painterly gestures that border on violence. Lacerations, smudges and sgraffito incisions attack the paint as if in a last-ditch…

Featured item from THE LIST: Don Porcaro at Hudson Boulevard Park

Featured item from THE LIST: Judith Murray at Sundaram Tagore Gallery


Despite an air of uninhibited, expressive spontaneity, the dense and busy paintings of Judith Murray play by strict rules. Since her debut in a lauded 1976 solo at Betty Parsons, she has restricted her palette within each work or group, developed a tight lexicon of strokes and shapes, and included her trademark bar at the…

Featured item from THE LIST: Jason Stopa at Steven Harvey


“The Gate,” Jason Stopa’s first solo show at Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects, features paintings that claim architectural patterns as pliable environments for painted exploration. Through layers of bright color and varying texture, Stopa abstracts rigid forms and brings elements from the outdoors in. In this spirit of harnessing energies and breaking boundaries, the back…
