Clarity Haynes in The New Yorker

Clarity Haynes The eyes may be the windows to the soul, but torsos are even more telling in this mid-career New York artist’s new group of intimate, numinous paintings. In this show, titled “Altar-ed Bodies,” Haynes explores the possibilities of feminist figuration in cropped compositions whose subjects are frankly depicted, in frontal poses, with their scars, stretch marks, and sagging flesh. Their tattoos and jewelry assume a talismanic significance, which continues in a companion series—its genre might be called “queer…Read More

Clarity Haynes Interviewed in Metal Magazine

CLARITY HAYNES ART AS A HEALER As a lesbian woman, artist Clarity Haynes is aware that her “contributions to culture are likely to be erased as I am doubly marginalized”. However, her paintings of torsos and altars, which play a cathartic role both on her, the people who model for her, and the audience, will go down in history. With the aim to promote peace, empower the marginalized and fight the patriarchy, her beautifully honest, raw and truthful artworks serve…Read More

Dana Sherwood: Horses for Trees UNTIL DECEMBER 21 DENNY DIMIN GALLERY / NEW YORK / ART The philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein wrote, “If a lion could speak, we would not be able to understand him.” Dana Sherwood puts this observation to work in her fantastical art, which gives a voice to the world’s non-human inhabitants. In a time when man has an overarching influence on the environment, Sherwood’s work reminds us that…Read More

[Matt Kenyon’s “Supermajor,” a fountain of motor oil (actually, dyed water), is a “memorial to the era of petro-capitalism and its mistaken beliefs” of endless supply, according to a wall label at the Museum of Capitalism.

Erin O’Keefe in Photograph Magazine

Erin O’Keefe: Seeing Things Denny Dimin Gallery, New York City By Stephanie Cash While it’s true that things aren’t always what they seem, it’s also true that things can be hidden in plain sight. A show of new works by Erin O’Keefe embraces both maxims. Just as Photorealist painters flipped the script on their medium, a number of photo-based artists of late have been tinkering with processes and materials to painterly effect. Consider the process-based abstractions by Matthew Brandt and…Read More

Not just any rock, though: she’d picked this one up while visiting the Gobi Desert. Shortly after, she took it to a Mongolian shaman, who blessed it and handed it back to her…Read More

Erin O’Keefe in Unseen Platform

SEEING THINGS by Erin O’Keefe Selected by Rebecca Leona van Enter, Artist and Gallery Liaison, Unseen “Carefully aligning colourful 3D blocks, Erin O’Keefe’s abstract compositions play with space and spatial perception. The resulting photographs trick the eye, and are often mistaken for paintings.” Unseen Platform: How long do you spend on the composition of each work? Do you make sketches of the desired result beforehand, or is it a matter of playing around until you’re happy? Erin O’Keefe: It’s a…Read More

The newest additions: Mead Art Museum exhibit features treasure trove of contemporary art By STEVE PFARRER Staff Writer What exactly defines contemporary art? As David Little sees it, there’s a fair amount of gray in that definition, since there’s debate about when modern art, the dominant theme of the 20th century, segued into contemporary art — sometimes broadly defined as “the art of today.”But the director and chief curator of Amherst College’s Mead Art Museum also notes that many contemporary artists are…Read More

Erin O’Keefe in Less Than Half

Interaction of Space Erin O’Keefe at Denny Dimin Gallery As a student of Western art history, I have been asked to study the work of Pablo Picasso a little too frequently for my taste. I thought I could confidently say that I had puzzled over his collages—you know, the famous still lifes that incorporate wine bottles and cut up pieces of le journal—enough to be thoroughly fed up with seminar table conversations on representation and reality in pictorial space. Imagine…Read More

There’s more to Erin O’Keefe’s still lifes than meets the eye PEI-RU KEH 11 SEP 2019 A bright and vibrant colour palette doesn’t often figure into the oeuvre of a trained architect, but for the artist Erin O’Keefe, who not only studied architecture but has taught it as well, the power of colour couldn’t play a bigger role in how she perceives space. ‘I taught for 23 years as an architectural professor and as part of that, I was teaching…Read More

While her work has remained fixated on a single subject during that time — how to manipulate space and our perception of it — the ways in which she interprets that subject seem to be almost infinite.

Justine Hill Interviewed in Abstract Room

JUSTINE HILL Interview by Frédéric Caillard, February 2019   When did you start to work with shaped panels? I started doing the cut-outs shapes and building my own panels almost four years ago now. But to me the works I was making before were the same, except they were rectangular. They also were abstract landscapes that talked about space, shapes and colors. So you did not think that transition was an important step at the time? I felt like it…Read More
