Juan Uslé by Shirley Kaneda

“I begin listening and recognizing silence, meditating until I hear the blood circulating, and then start following the beats, making marks, one by one, line by line, emptying myself until the entire surface of the canvas is covered.”

Charline Von Heyl by Shirley Kaneda

I first came across Charline von Heyl’s paintings in the mid-’90s. She had moved to New York from Germany in 1994, having had her first New York solo show at Friedrich Petzel Gallery.

Shirley Jaffe by Shirley Kaneda
Jaffe 01 Body

Shirley Jaffe’s distinctive and eccentric work is difficult to pin down, both in time and style. When I first came across her paintings at the Holly Solomon Gallery in New York in 1988, I had an immediate response to their idiosyncratic quality.

Article 2401 31May09Rg  Mangold 01

To look at any painting by Robert Mangold is to see exactly what is there. For over 30 years, his work has been clear and direct.

With his interactive display of multicolored concentric rectangles, vintage record players covered in sequins and yarn-covered jazz records, artist Jim Lambie presents work with an ingenious appeal.

James Siena by Shirley Kaneda
James Siena 01

Siena successfully turns his images into what they are not, coaxing their “other” from them. Seemingly without conscious intention, he transfixes the viewer like a magician, making the nonexistent become existent, in the most indirect way.

Jim Butler’s recent paintings bring to the tradition of “realism” a concern for the act of perception.

Roland Flexner by Shirley Kaneda
Roland Flexner

The 19th-century traditional skills of the “fine artist” and the nomadic intellect of the postmodern would seemingly be at odds with one another, as if object and subject were intent on maintaining total disregard or being completely dissolved by each other. Such a paradox is at the core of Roland Flexner’s work.

Philip Taaffe by Shirley Kaneda
Taffe 01 Body

“Decoration in this folk sense is a kind of culturalized representation of nature. It’s closest to the raw elements that reflect a very specific geographical location in historical time. The importance of it for me is that I can have these circumstances of time and place in crystalline form, and I can feel those realities, feel the history that they inevitably speak about in this natural cultural sense.”
