Gregory Coates, Positions, at Opalka Gallery, in Albany....
Piece above is a detail shot of one of the twelve bars pictured below, all of them wood wrapped with black inner tubes, painted.
Wrapped and woven, gorgeous up close... it's hard choosing images.
3 x 4 = 1, 2006, acrylic on rubber on wood pallets.
Like Donald Judd.
How Do You Like Me Now?, 2006, acrylic on rubber with pvc
The title is a reference to David Hammons' white Jesse Jackson.
Inner-tubes sprayed white.

Detail of Kiki: Short for Christiane, 2007, pigment on rubber on wood pallet.
Stretched, wrapped, tied, and painted. Looks like powder. Like seeing the air valves poking out everywhere.
This blue still doesn't quite match the blue of the piece...
Daytime, 2007, acrylic on feathers on wood panels.
One of four large feather paintings in the show... I like this one, but the two next to it not so much. This one is better.
Gregory Coates is one of the artists I liked in the show with Al Loving. I was loving Alvin Loving so much I never got around to posting Coates and Betty Blayton.
Roam, 2006, industrial plastic wrap on wooden pallets.
There are so many tiny lines in the plastic...

Monument For Steve Cannon, 2007
Monument For Steve Cannon consists of a sofa on a carpet, facing a large black feather painting. Steve Cannon is the poet-professor founder of A Gathering of The Tribes. Is this sofa from Tribes??
