As a sucker for bright colors and intricate patterns, my pick for this week is this beautiful work on paper by Deepak Bhandari that lets the viewer take a peek at a tender moment between Radha-Krishna in Vrindavan, as recounted in Hindu scriptures.

This extremely intimate moment of nursing between mother and child is abstracted through Greven’s close cropping and use of a limited range of colors. The artist’s work often reminds me of cameo jewelry, with white profiles against pastels, both ethereal and lovely.

These eye-catching monumental sculptures were cast from real tree roots, and are full of whimsy, energy, and personality. The two sculptures seem to be reaching out to each other, as if asking for a dance.

Holiber’s practice encompasses many mediums, but his continuous manipulation of planes and texture always result in fun portraits that seem straight out of a Laika Studios pastel, stop-motion horror film. Head is a particularly hefty painting considering its relatively compact size (18-by-18 inches), and fully utilizes the artist’s signature brown-pink gradient with imparts a sense of emotionality into the narrative of his characters.

In this dreamlike portrait, Henrietta Harris challenges the constructs of traditional portraiture through the distortion of her subject. The fragmentation of the subject’s face conveys a sense of vulnerability and uncertainty that are uncharacteristic for the art form.

After a long mercury in retrograde, this photograph, which captures the famed celestial phenomenon of the Comet Hale-Bopp aka the Great Comet of 1997, is a particularly welcomed reminder of the beauty of the cosmos.

Käthe Kollwitz
Mutter und Kind

From the beginning of her artistic career, Käthe Kollwitz denounced social injustice and oppression with great vigor. At the same time, her paintings, prints and sculptures sparkled with vitality, caring, and solidarity. After the death of her son in 1914, she became an avowed pacifist and the motif of the mourning mother frequently found its way into her art. The delicate drawing of mother and child here stirs the viewer with its loving intimacy.

The California-born photographer Richard Misrach is famed for his acute understanding and sensitivity to muted, ghostly tones. His landscapes of beaches, deserts, and empty highways have a sense of mystery and often a sense of ruin or decay, as with this photo of a drained pool in the Salton Sea, which possesses an undeniable beauty of its own.

—Karin Petit

Italian artist Angelo Accardi’s works bring together references from across centuries of art history, classical to contemporary, in a delightful and amusing style. His paintings are full of details and layered references, like the Vermeer, Basquiat, and Murakami works that appear in the painting shown here.

Song Hyun-Sook, 3 Brushstrokes (2017). Courtesy of Zeno X Gallery.

The simplicity and reduction of this work captured my attention. As the title lets us know, this painting is centrally composed by three brushstrokes, but it is full of vitality even so. The work reminds me of the pureness and truth which can be found in stillness and meditation.

—Tobias Molitor

 

Hush
 Faces 1 & 2
Kumi Contemporary & Verso Contemporary
Inquire for More Information

Hush, Faces 1 & 2 (2019). Kumi Contemporary & Verso Contemporary.

This work by Hush depicts a red-lipped woman amid a colorful, almost collage-like backdrop of patterns. The image embraces the raw edges of a street art style, but with the sophisticated execution of Pop art to make it fit comfortably within a home.
