Joanne Greenbaum, Xylor Jane, Rebecca Morris, Jakub Julian Ziolkowski
Joanne Greenbaum... don't remember the title... but I love this painting. At greengrassi.
Xylor Jane... don't remember the title or gallery.
Rebecca Morris, untitled (#06-08), 2008, oil and spraypaint on canvas, at Galerie Barbara Weiss.
Here is another one, and here they are side by side. They're small.
Jakub Julian Ziolkowski, untitled, 2007, oil on canvas, at Hauser and Wirth.
I liked the two paintings he had in a group show at 303 Gallery last summer -
Jakub Julian Ziolkowski, in Three for Society, at 303 Gallery, through July 27th - something creepy, like a leather mask or something...both his paintings are cartoony but creepy like that. I like the way he lets these tiny controlled drips happen, and then works them into the composition... for example, in the piece above you can maybe see that little drip of blue in the shoulder, and in this piece you can see the oily ass-crack sweat.
There is so much tension in that drip of blue in the shoulder.
