MUST SEE PAINTINGS SHOWS: MARCH by New American Paintings

Filed under: Must-Sees | Tags: , , ,

There are dozens of strong painting exhibitions on view in March. In the interest of full disclosure, I not only publish New American Paintings, but I have a gallery in Boston as well. I am very fortunate to have an show of new paintings by Peter Opheim this month. Opheim focused his energies on abstraction for more than two decades, but in 2010 his work took a radical shift. While he begins each work with by creating of a small clay model, his paintings are anything but “still-lifes”; rather, they are extraordinary mediations on the medium of paint and the activity of painting.

On a recent visit to galleries in New York City, I found myself captivated by the work of Donald Moffett at Marianne Boesky Gallery. The first impulse is to read his work as sculpture, but they are, in fact, paintings. For each work, Moffett offers a three dimensional context in which his finely wrought paintings exist. As he has done for years, Moffett pushes the idea of “what” a painting is to the breaking point. In doing so, he continues to open new territory for other artists to explore. View the entire “must-see” list after the jump! – Steven Zevitas, Editor/Publisher
