Minus Space: A Champion for Reductivism in the Center of the Art Market, by Jim Caton, Long Island Homes for Sale, June 1, 2015

Mark Dagley, Structural Solutions, MINUS SPACE, Brooklyn, NY

Minus Space may be a gallery dedicated to the pared-down genre of Reductivist art, but in the twelve years since its founding, it has grown considerably.

Mark Dagley & John Nixon in Elementary Painting, Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, St. Gallen, Switzerland

20_Installationsansicht_St.Gallen_Foto_Stefan_Rohner

An orange surface on a baking sheet with a simple white frame, or an orange accent on a small-scale canvas...? What is the deciding factor that differentiates painting and crafts as art forms? How do today's artists deal with the starting point of painting since this problem appeared to have been long resolved but is challenged once again by each generation? These are the kind of questions to which the Elementary Painting exhibition at the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen devotes itself: It confronts the classic colour field paintings with situations which initially determine the paintings by their borders.

Mark Dagley

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.
