Opening Reception |
Much of Jackie Gendel’s recent work makes contradictory use of two of modernity’s most common conventions of image production: serial repetition of form and the sequential image of narrative. She employs both, using them simultaneously to unfold the implied relationship between narrative time and painterly process.

Opening Reception |
A native of Southern California, painter Alex Couwenberg creates images that are inspired by the elements of his surroundings. Couwenberg's work references his Los Angeles roots and suggests the aesthetic associated with car culture, surfboards, skateboards, and modernist design. Historically, his work pays a visual homage to the art making styles connected with Los Angeles and Southern California dating back to the 1950's and nods towards the Hard-Edge and Geometric Abstractionists, the Finish Fetish, and the Light and Space artists who created the aesthetic of LA's art making community.

Opening Reception |
For his first major solo show in New York, the thirty-year-old artist has created a series of darkly humorous paintings in a somber palette and with robust, fervid brushstrokes, as well as drawings scribbled in graphite. Influenced as much by boyish fables, graphic novels, and time spent in densely-wooded areas of Wisconsin, as by the paintings of Pieter Brueghel the Elder and Hieronymus Bosch, Schein's compositions are intimate at the same time that they are vast. The subject matter is redolent - sometimes vaguely medieval, other times faintly biblical - and because of this, we find ourselves searching from painting to painting for a narrative that may never cohere.
