My Selection:

Emi Otaguro, omen, 2014, at KAYOKOYUKI

These subtle works made of unusual materials create intriguing compositions.

A.K. Burns, Untitled (shirt), 2013, at Callicoon Fine Arts

A.K. Burns makes memorials out of work shirts, exploring social histories, materiality and affect.

Karl Wirsum, Turning the Tables on My Bald Head, 2013, at Derek Eller Gallery

I’m obsessed with Karl Wirsum.

Elaine Reichek, Swatch, Murray, 2006, at Zach Feuer

This is a great Elaine Reichek, bringing together craft and minimal forms.

Olga Balema, Interior biomorphic attachment (more comfortable), 2014, at High Art

These visceral forms function as buffers between bodies and architecture, conceived for particular interior features. Olga Balema's work is currently on view at SculptureCenter in the group show “Puddle, pothole, portal.”

Pamela Rosenkranz, Clearer, 2014, at SculptureCenter

I am really excited about Rosenkranz’s limited edition for SculptureCenter (full disclosure, I work at SculptureCenter). She is representing Switzerland in the next Venice Biennale, and these elegant and minimal prints explore the luminescence of opals and the form of aspirin.

Joel Holmberg, Data So Vast, 2014, at American Contemporary

New paintings by Joel Holmberg take screen ads and slogans into a static and humorous space of contemplation.

Joseph Yoakum, Coachello Valley Near San Bernardino California, August 4, 1969, 1969, at Adams and Ollman

These landscapes offer much to explore. Joseph Yoakum was included in the 2013 Carnegie International, and in his life was a prolific drawer, traveler and tale teller.
