“Paul Resika: Ode to the Moon” opens tonight with a reception from 6-8 PM. 🌕🌔🌓

The exhibition is comprised of eight recent paintings finished over the last year. The compositions in these works continue to build-on, or rather remove-from, the artist’s “End of Day” series, which depicted pared-down sunsets over the ocean horizon. This series is even more minimal. The canvases are predominantly empty, painted in single hues ranging from terra-cotta to cerulean to goldenrod and executed in passes of rhythmic brushwork. Sometimes there is a single circle, signifying the moon, sometimes not. A few canvases also delineate the horizon with a single, abbreviated line. One painting, “Cobalt Galaxy,” is the largest in the show and measures 75 x 65 inches; it features many orbs and circles and calls to mind the artist’s “Ponds” series from 2010.

The gallery is pleased to share a recent review of “Olive Ayhens: Metabolic Metropolis” from “The Manhattan Art Review” .

These are really hard to get a grip on; they’re just as quaint as they are tripped out, crude as they are technical, overly literal in the juxtaposition of the urban and then natural but also convincing in moments of ridiculous caricature, traffic schematization in the manner of Richard Scarry’s Busytown, and free distortion of perspectival planes. It’s truly jarring to see the effort put into rendering of a mountain vista overlooking Malta with its cute little cars and undulating but visually convincing city blocks fully disrupted by a near-stick figure of a giant blue woman reclining on the rocks across the bay. The moments of outright dumb ideas, like a traffic jam in a fuchsia swamp of pollution connected by vines to an outcropping city or a luxury high-rise populated entirely by crudely-inserted, oversized tree frogs, sits so directly next to virtuosically disorienting perspectives and authentically weird details like giant army men (more assault rifles) presiding over a crowd of tiny people and wavy cars at a mall that they manage to make the flaws into endearing elements that actually improve the whole.

The exhibition continues through April 12, 2024.

Wising a very happy birthday to Hiroyuki Hamada, who was in 1968 in Tokyo, Japan. The artist has been represented by Bookstein Projects since 2012 and has also exhibited widely throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. He has been awarded various residencies including those at the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center, the Edward F. Albee Foundation/William Flanagan Memorial Creative Person’s Center, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and the MacDowell Colony. Hamada’s work has been featured in various publications, including Stokstad and Cothren’s widely used art history text book Art: A Brief History (Pearseon). In 1998 he was the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant; he was a two time recipient of New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships (2009 and 2017), and was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2018. Hamada lives and works in East Hampton, New York.

🔳 47 years ago on this day in 1977, Stephen Antonakos created this deceptively simple collage, constructed by collating a torn rectangular drawing. German art historian Daniel Marzona called Antonakos’s drawings “. . . the spiritual center of this many-layered oeuvre, which in my opinion touches upon a universal harmony, like the work of Mondrian, it cannot be written about — as Wittgenstein put it: it shows itself.”

“Sharon Horvath creates paintings which move in perpetual fluidity: Figure, ground, color, and form interflow like rivers and land shaping each other. The visible and the hidden are layered and in flux. Her paintings convey the feeling of deep water that contains both one’s reflection as well as the void. In the shadows, delicate forms come into focus just below the surface. Things that first appeared solid, dissolve into ripples. But one gets the sense that these paintings were not created solely for the viewer’s eyes.” -Benjamin Degen ()

This painting is included in “Sharon Horvath: Small Myriad,” on view now through February 16, 2024.
