Passlof | tusslemagazine

"Each painting is imbued with a presence specific to itself, without reaching out to other works during the same period. This does not mean that Passlof’s oeuvre is unrelated; in fact, the emotional life of many of her paintings was filled with a similar joy. But as we move from one work to the next, it is difficult to find close stylistic relations--an attribute that first seems like an idiosyncrasy and then looks like an achievement."

Don't miss Jonathan Goodman's review of Pat Passlof's exhibition in Tussle Magazine:

As a movement, abstract expressionism was dominated by patriarchy; men made most of the noise. But women artists such as Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, and Pat Passlof were also working, making paintings that equally belong to a survey of important artists at the time. Passlof, the long-term compan...

“You can’t paint the cosmos or any great distance. You have to find the metaphor for it between blades of grass or the reflection in an eye or an abstract equivalent. The painting has to be close to you.” -Pat Passlof

Pat Passlof’s touch of the brush

"Viewing this retrospective, we sense that Passlof has succeeded in walking the talk, not only in the great stylistic variety that runs like a vein through this entire retrospective, but also in the uniquely sensitive and felt integrity of each brushstroke."

Pat Passlof: The Brush is the Finger of the Brain

"What comes through is a radiant pictorial intelligence, a questing curiosity about what paint can do and a willingness to take formal risks."

Read Eleanor Heartney's thoughtful review of our current Passlof exhibition on The Brooklyn Rail:

Since art is neither the solution to a problem nor the ex*****on of a plan, all attempts to approach it that way create obstacles. Preconception cancels out thinking and substitutes a possible false sense of knowing, for truer seeing.

It was a great opportunity to be at the NYSS and have him share his passion with us.. Interesting approach to teaching..
