Lauren Seiden: Querencia Named a “Must-See Show” on Blouin Artinfo

Read on Blouin Artinfo “5 Must-See Gallery Shows: Lauren Seiden, Michael Berryhill, and More” By Scott Indrisek Lauren Seiden at Denny Gallery, through June 8 Crumpled, graphite-laden masses of paper assume the appearance of marble or stone in Seiden’s debut solo show in New York. They’re simultaneously delicate and imposing, practically begging the viewer to poke them, simply to see if they’ll yield or resist. (But yeah, don’t do that. Really.) As abstract objects — part drawing, part sculpture — they’re…Read More

Essay on Nikolai Ishchuk’s Offset by Lucy Soutter

Read on photoworks Nikolai Ishchuk’s Offset series pulls apart the family album. Ishchuk has digitally reworked a set of found snapshots, separating the central figures from each other and leaving the middle of the frame oddly vacant. This gesture is a direct function of the Photoshop offset filter referenced in the title, a tool that automatically splits an image down the middle and reverses the pieces so that the centre moves to the edges and the edges meet in a…Read More

“Windows” Reviewed on Artforum.com

By Tina Rivers This show contributes to the heated debate over the relationship between contemporary art and digital technology by cleverly focusing on the idea of “windows.” In this context, windows is a double entendre, referring both to the long-standing metaphor for the picture plane in Western art and to the more recent use of overlapping frames to organize information on computer screens, challenging the window’s association with a single-point perspective. The artists in this show are fluent in both…Read More

Review of Amanda Valdez in Idiom, “A Sweet Tooth & Some Cavities” by Jeffrey Kirkwood

Link to read on Idiom. In a meditation on the ‘seductiveness’ of the big toe, Georges Bataille wrote in 1929 — “human life entails, in fact, the rage of seeing oneself as a back and forth movement from refuse to ideal, and from the ideal to refuse — a rage that is easily directed against an organ as base as the foot.” Against this caliginous member of Acéphal’s tendency to luxuriate in real abjection, Amanda Valdez’s finely executed assemblages discover the joyous excesses of…Read More

Review of Amanda Valdez in Dossier

Link to read on Dossier Journal Amanda Valdez: Taste of Us An abstract painter is situated strangely in relation to the history of her medium. On the one hand, very little in a given work bears a direct and obvious connection to common social life – a situation that has always made interpreting an abstract painting uncomfortable. By definition, it cannot picture its theme, and this makes it seem too distant from the languages in which we usually express our…Read More

Installation view, “Wendy White: Pix Vää” at Leo Koenig, Inc. (all images courtesy Leo Koenig, Inc.) What do you call Wendy White’s most recent works, which are made of two or more panels that rest on the floor, hug the wall and at the same time protrude from it? Combines and hybrids are the obvious answers, but those familiar designations hardly tell the story. There is something fresh about White’s work that these familiar designations don’t account for. The panels…Read More
