Just keepin’ you up to date here.
Gary Panter opened a show of phenomenal new work a couple weeks back. It’s at Fredericks & Freiser, NYC, and included paintings like the above two, which situate Gary’s emotionally charged figural juxtapositions in a vertigo-inducing landscape. Gary somehow manages to reference both hard-edged minimalism and his own “Western” past, with all the fraught masculine/feminine relationships that entails. Gary. Ruler.
Joe Bradley just did a show of prints like this at Frieze. Joe, like me, has a fondness for underground artists like George Hansen. This fucked up version of Mr. Natural is a pretty glorious distortion of the Crumb language — stretching it into JB’s territory and then pouncing on it.
This killer Bob Zoell painting is on view at an Overspray-derived show in Los Angeles. Bob, as usual, wins best-in-show. And no, me and Norman weren’t consulted. Note to prospective collaborators: When using images we retouched and text we wrote, it’s polite to ask first. End of note.
This blog is going to take you to school. You will learn about all things PictureBox: old dudes; obscure design; good painting; bad painting; dogs; annoying product endorsements. And so forth. All from me, Dan Nadel, your PictureBox host.
