Carmen Anzano

Carmen sees the world “as ‘shapes and threads’, elements from which she continues to weave new shapes and emotions. She interlaces string, thread and ribbon to generate surfaces with which she articulates spaces and configures a cosmos of lines and dynamic tensions. These lineal frameworks dominate together with a colour scheme at times vivid, intense and energetic, at others harmonious, subtle and mysterious.



Duane Linklater

is included in Junkyard of Dreams at Bortolami. Linklater’s practice is concerned in part with the exploration of the physical and theoretical structures of the museum in relation to the current and historical conditions of Indigenous people and their objects and forms. These explorations are articulated in a myriad of forms including sculpture, photography, film and video, installation and text works.



Sean Kratzert

Sean is a self-taught artist and multi-instrumentalist that currently makes work on the CT shoreline. He is informed by his passion for art history and contemporary art, as well as his experience working with materials as a carpenter and house painter. This has led to Sean’s deliberate use and misuse of materials in the studio through painting, collage and sculpture. By mixing paints that don’t mix and allowing organic works to form, he can lend to the idea of an object growing (or decaying) in time and space.



Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt

Curated by Kathleen Reinhardt and first shown at the Albertinum Museum in Dresden, For Ruth, The Sky in Los Angeles: Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt and David Horvitz is a living homage to the history of Mail Art and visual poetry and a recognition of their ongoing resonance.



Alonzo Davis

Davis’ six-decade-long career (which Parrasch Heijnen is pleased to highlight in the gallery’s first solo exhibition covering the same) has explored a wide range of media and methods, from mural to print, painting, sculpture, performance, and installation. As co-founder of the Brockman Gallery, the first major Black-owned contemporary art gallery in Los Angeles (1967 – 1990), Alonzo Davis sought to champion Black artists including David Hammons, Suzanne Jackson, Betye Saar, Senga Nengudi, Noah Purifoy, and John Outterbridge, among many others, in a time when white, male art was prevalent. Davis’ appreciation and promotion of Black artists and cultural references collected on trips all over the world are often referenced in his own work.


Jacqueline Humphries

After a 2005 fire in her studio, Humphries produced the first of her scintillating “black light” paintings, which radiate wild, ghostly neon colors in dark rooms under ultraviolet light—not a technique that one sees contemporary artists using very often. “Fluorescent colors are very powerful, yet they were so bounded by these typical associations—African princess sex goddess, marijuana and magic mushrooms, Jimi Hendrix and the Doors, and that was kind of it,” Humphries said, sitting in a backroom at Greene Naftali, her longtime Chelsea gallery. “I grew up in the ’60s, so I was into it. Why not take something like that and see if you can make serious abstraction with it?” More


Jeanne Reynal

Hyperallergic notes that Three Women Artists: Expanding Abstract Expressionism in the American West uncovers the little-known stories of professional and creative gains in the region, and especially in the Texas Panhandle. Jeanne (who is no longer with us and was unfamiliar to me prior to this article) features in this story.

Beverly Buchanan

Dead Lecturer / distant relative: Notes from the Woodshed, 1950-1980 focuses on works by Asian American and African American artists whose approaches to abstraction provided alternatives to prevailing vocabularies for representation and resistance during the social movements of the 1960s and 70s, and for whom the parameters of visibility continue to remain a problem for thought today. Beverly is one of the selected creatives (also including Howardena and Al). Her work mined a strong motif for decades and slowly became more abstracted although never was true “abstraction.” Readers of who like below should also explore Jennifer and Nicky.
