I first encountered Irene’s mathematically-inspired work when looking at a write up about Blurring Boundaries: The Women of American Abstract Artists, 1936 – Present on view now at South Bend Museum of Art (which also includes Alice and Esphyr).
A colleague suggested Katherine to me recently.
Sarah Shepard Gallery has a solo exhibition of Serena’s new works- Juxtapoz finds them noteworthy.
When I was in grad school I saw Susie talk at the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston as a part of Abstract Painting, Once Removed— appears some years later she had a solo show there as well. Her work process has always been quite disciplined and it appears the monochromatic pieces of the early 2000s have given way to a broader palette (btw if you like these you’ll also like Sanford and Rob).
As I continue to think back on artists that were having a (or their first, in Calame’s case) big Art world moment while I was doing grad studies I’m reminded of course (since she, Monique and Polly were often mentioned collectively by the critical community) that Ingrid’s works* were considered lineage and departure from Pollock.
(*image below is from that time; her work like her colleagues mentioned above has moved in new directions over the last two decades)
Blogging about Aaron inspired me to look up info on one of the shows he was in at the CAM in Houston- I mentioned in that blog this was sort of a movement.
Artforum dove in as well (Monique was on the cover of the issue in which the essay linked above appeared). What I enjoy(ed) about that part of her oeuvre was how it could be serious and not at the same time (I do think contradiction is fun and serious).
Since this was all happening at the time I was in grad school I’m gonna go down that lane for the next week or so. Oh- second image is what she’s up to these days.
I got to take some classes with Aaron when I was at the University of Houston. At the time he was in the midst of a “movement” I can’t describe any better I think than cool abstraction. It was so refreshing after my somber undergrad experience. More on that.
A friend turned me on to Su’s IG recently. Read more about her work.
Not hard to see why Juxtapoz wanted to cover Felipe’s newest.
A friend of mine picked up some Peter’s work recently.
I’ve followed Paul on IG and see he is in Chrysalistasis with Amy.
Seeing the cover of the new Alice Trumbull Mason monograph inspired me to reflect on some of my favs.
Below is an older drawing from Robert- I encourage you to also check out his To Be Determined series.
Artsy notes 5 worth following if you like KAWS. I’ve blogged about Maya (and of course KAWS) before, glad to encounter Eric as well.
