David Reed, born 1946 in San Diego and a resident of New York since the 1970s, has in his good forty creative years developed an oeuvre that, with all its concentration on specific forms of painting, also maintains relationships to other, more recent image media, especially to film and video art.

Endless: Laura Bell, Michelle Grabner & Amy M. Ho, Plug Projects, Kansas City, MO

Endless is PLUG Projects' sixth exhibition featuring Amy M. Ho's installation of a deep projected space, the landscape photographs of Laura Bell, and Michelle Grabner's process-based paintings. Restrained and non-theatrical, the works in the show nonetheless evoke monumental and highly abstract ideas of order, space and time. Viewers are presented with pictorial spaces, which, if only for a brief moment, make possible the loss of identity and encounter with the infinite.

Julian Dashper & John Reynolds, Gow Langsford Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand

In 1984 new works by Julian Dashper and John Reynolds were exhibited together at a gallery in Wellington. At the time it was noted that these works were “about living in New Zealand and living in the world at the same time. There is simultaneously order and disorder. Everything is in motion, and to survive change we abstract our experience. We reflect ourselves back on the world according to the abstractions we have made.”

Some Walls is pleased to present Daniel Levine: "Marker". In an interview with John Zinsser in NY Arts Magazine, Levine answers, "...my paintings aren’t as "outwardly friendly" as yours are. You’re the "friendly" abstract painter – the "A" side of a great single; I’m the "B" side, in a minor key."

Amy Feldman: Dark Selects, Blackston, New York, NY

Feldman composes striking images by employing a limited number of pictorial elements on the surface of her paintings. Simple yet acute gestures coupled with basic formal devices dovetail to create images that have a strong visual impact on the viewer. Feldman seeks a visual clarity that is at once profound and undercut by humor.

Mark Dagley in Material Tak, Panepinto Galleries, Jersey City, NJ

Panepinto Galleries and STUDIO 371 are pleased to present Material Tak, a group exhibition devoted exclusively to the practice of painting. One of the oldest and most revered forms of artistic output, painting is a doggedly powerful medium. Not merely as defined by its visceral exactitude or allegiance to color, but in its ability to strike at the core of who we are—to register on levels of the psyche otherwise untouched by the parlance of everyday life or pedagogical dogma.

Douglas Melini: A Sharing of Color and Being Part of It, Feature Inc., New York, NY

Working with the contrast between a minimal palette and intensive patterning (a dialog that allows the paintings to be simultaneously quiet yet deeply activated), Douglas Melini makes hard-edge abstract paintings that investigate color and space. “I like to think of the paintings as being built, put together part by part, creating a geometric net for the viewer, a vibratory field.”
