The paintings of Brooklyn-based, Houston native Jackie Gendel are weighted equally in a late 19th-century vernacular and an intense sense of looseness and figurative indifference. The works in her new exhibition for Houston’s Bryan Miller, who recently changed his gallery name from CTRL to something more eponymous, feel strongly rooted in styles like German Expressionism without feeling overwhelming, as if using a Fauvist palette as simply a point of entry instead of subject matter. For all the tropes of “late style” painting found in each, Gendel’s work doesn’t take itself too seriously, as both her brushstrokes and the title of the show make clear. 

Fables in Slang, Gendel’s current solo exhibition at Bryan Miller Gallery, is on view through July 2, 2011. More pics after the jump!
