Artist of the day: Imi Knoebel

Ever since I met Imi Knoebel’s work at Dia: Beacon I’ve been interested in his constructed paintings, but I was surprised to see these new pieces in Joanne Mattera’s extensive coverage of the Miami art fairs that took place in early December. Knoebel seems to have broken free of the grid he was using at his 2009 show at Mary Boone and moved in a quirkier, more idiosyncratic direction. I’m loving these.
