Dekkenga works out the compositions of her paintings in Adobe Illustrator. After applying an impasto underpainting, she uses herself as printer to transfer the composition to the painting surface. The procedure produces a thing that levels action and stops movement, making it impossible to retrace a series of painterly moves.

The first solo exhibition in a New York museum by the globally renowned contemporary artist El Anatsui, this show will feature over 30 works in metal and wood that transform appropriated objects into site-specific sculptures. Anatsui converts found materials into a new type of media that lies between sculpture and painting, combining aesthetic traditions from his birth country, Ghana; his home in Nsukka, Nigeria; and the global history of abstraction.

A solo exhibition by New York-based painter Winston Roeth.
We are pleased to be showing a selection of eight new paintings by New York artist John Zinsser. Zinsser works with an organic version of the grid, pulling exaggerated impastos off of flat grounds. He extends the physical range of traditional oil and canvas with spray enamels and resin additives to enable pronounced juxtapositions of figure and ground.
Sprecher’s paintings combine disparate and conflicting visual imagery from a variety of sources: quilts, children’s drawings, signage, gemstones (to name but a few). A wide range of patterns, color and texture come together into elemental, fluid shapes.
