hey i did not 'officially' post this article yet -
Abstract Painting: The New Casualists, by Sharon Butler, in The Brooklyn Rail.... or read it on Sharon's site because there are some good comments.
AND she made a follow-up post responding to all the feedback she's received. Someone actually wrote a letter to The Brooklyn Rail complaining I was included (!)... haha wow.
Anyone interested in Sharon's article, or Raphael Rubinstein's 2009 Provisional Painting article, might enjoy reading this 2006 Vittorio Colaizzi review of a show I had in Richmond -
"Emptiness and lack become activist refusal. This is not mannered 'bad painting', but a genuine absence of professional finesse, a subversion of the handsome, assured, and reassuring qualities of today's more manageable abstract painting"
PS- I looked at PaintersNYC to see which artists mentioned in the New Casualist article had been discussed on PaintersNYC, and what was said.... love to go back and look at that blog.
