Images: Danielle Dimston

Contributed by Sharon Butler / Danielle Dimston’s sublime watercolor images have an ethereal, other-worldly quality, as if they were the visual manifestations of a deeply meditative state. In her exhibition at Municipal Bonds, much of the work, spanning the last twelve years, focuses on creating the illusion of light through […]

Images: Becky Brown, Annette Cords, and accidental poetry

According to the press release for “Cognition-Stroll,” a collaborative exhibition on view at Project:ARTspace that features Annette Cords and Becky Brown, the hyphenated term is a literal English translation of the German compound word Erkenntnisspaziergang, which means “a practice of going out to gain deeper insight while walking.” Brown and Cords roam the streets of New York City, accumulating […]

Like them, he mixes the coloristic exuberance of School of Paris painting with a Wordsworthian belief […]

Hughes paints mundane objects, isolated on white canvases, that walk the line between representation and abstract. Seemingly drained of […]

Image of the Day: Ellen Siebers

  I stopped by Matteawan Gallery in Beacon yesterday to check out Ellen Siebers’ winsome show before it closes on Sunday. Siebers paints an assortment of objects from memory, some recognizable and some not, on a small scale and using neutral color, recalling the simplicity of Shaker design. “With every […]

Images: Theresa Hackett

In my search for a summer studio sublet, I recently discovered Theresa Hackett’s superb abstractions. Full of delicate color combinations and seductive textural contrasts, Hackett’s paintings reference landscape, architecture, textiles and the modernist grid, which she breaks down and idiosyncratically reconstitutes in odd, refreshing, ways. Her paintings present a kind […]
