Harriet Korman's stubborn streak

Harriet Korman's sixth solo show at Lennon, Weinberg is comprised of paintings made in the past three years, as well as several black and white pastel drawings that serve as studies for the paintings. For the past decade, Korman has pursued hard-edged form and pure color, while forging a connection to earlier periods in which process and mark-making were emphasized. In the new work, fresh elements include looser marks, patches of grid and parallel lines. In a 2004 review in Art in America, Faye Hirsch called Korman's paintings "delightfully stubborn."

"Harriet Korman: Recent Paintings and Drawings," Lennon, Weinberg, New York, NY. Through March 8.
