My Selection: 

Scott Reeder, Untitled (Pasta Painting), 2013, at Lisa Cooley

I have been following Scott’s work for quite some time and love his new series of “Pasta Paintings.”

Theo Wujcik, Cross Cultural Awe, 2013, at Galleri Urbane

A very talented portrait painter who—over the years—has worked with some of the great contemporary masters. 

Jonah Freeman & Justin Lowe, Sheetrock Brand Gypsum Panel (San San International Archive #62), 2012, at Marlborough Chelsea

I was introduced to Jonah and Justin’s work last year at the Dallas Art Fair and responded to it immediately. Captivating imagery. 

Hassel Smith, Untitled, 1970, at 333 Montezuma Arts 

Love Geometric Abstraction. Interesting colorist.

Sadie Laska, Feel Up, 2014, at Canada

A compelling Gestural Abstraction via mixed media and vibrant color. 

Noemie Goudal, Observatoire VI (Stalingrad), 2013, at Edel Asanti

Goudal’s imagery brings to mind Bernd and Hilla Becher’s documentary photographs. 

Neil Raitt, Alpine 05.02, 2014, at HUS Gallery 

Thomas Øvlisen, LWRBSTHAH, 2011, at Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery

I respond to the painterly process. 

Alighiero e Boetti, Segno e Disegno, 1978, at Massimo De Carlo

A really classic composition by a master of the Arte Povera movement. 

Rolf Behm, Schimagar 7, 2013, at Howard Scott Gallery

I like the translucent and ethereal quality of the paint application. 

Lonnie Holley, Waiting On My Takeout, 2013, at James Fuentes

I’m a big fan of self-taught artists such as Thornton Dial. I love Lonnie’s playful use of found objects.

Ridley Howard, 3:15, 2013, at Koenig & Clinton The image hits very close to home!
