My Highlights from ADAA: The Art Show 2014
Jackson Pollock, Untitled, circa. 1938-4, at Washburn Gallery
I’ve always appreciated the pre-drip Pollock and this looks like a major work by the father of Abstract Expressionism.
Having just returned from New Orleans, this painting grabbed me. I really like its cool rendering.
I love this Film Still, one of Cindy’s first in her legendary series.
I’ve always loved this series of Laurie’s. This is a prime and dramatic example.
Irving Penn was a genius with a camera. The classical subject of the reclining nude is the starting point for this very sculptural silhouette.
D’Arcangelo was a Pop Artist, known for his use of highway imagery. I’m drawn to this work’s geometric features and contrasting colors and feel it’s an interesting juxtaposition with other prime examples from the period.
Ellsworth Kelly, Avocado [I], 1958, at Barbara Krakow Gallery
I love Kelly’s flower drawings and this is a great example. The early date lends to it’s importance. The thought that Kelly was making these beautiful and elegant works on paper at the same time he would be breaking ground with his bold abstract paintings is fascinating to me.
Diane Arbus, A family on their lawn on Sunday in Westchester, N.Y. 1968, 1968, at Fraenkel Gallery
This is one of the great images captured by one of the great masters of photography!
Daniel Buren, Peinture acrylique blanche sur tissu rayé blanc et marron, 1973, at Bortolami
I love Buren’s work and really favor the palate. The date should make this example something to seriously consider.
This looks like a beautiful example by a true abstract colorist.
Someone needs to buy this!
