Studio view of new works
The Brooklyn based artist, Brooke Moyse, is one of my favorite painters working in New York today.
While her work could be cited as an example of Bushwick's recent New Casualist esthetic, the formal qualities of Moyse's painting have been evolving steadily, into a studied offhandedness, for some years.
The quick appearance of her paint application is butted against a sophisticated palette, and accute sense of composition, that lend an air of urbanity to Moyse's paintings.
These varied, formal contrasts, along with the ambition and scale of much of her work,
make her seem right at home in the current group show at Loretta Howard Gallery in Chelsea. In DNA: Strands of Abstraction, she shares wall space with Kline, Motherwell, Frankenthaller, Poons and Rockburne without missing a beat.
In the latest entry, for the In Process series, I am happy to present the development of one of Moyse's recent paintings . . . .
From the artist's statement:
Big, acrylic on canvas, 94 x 60 in.
Brooke Moyse's work can currently be seen in the group show, DNA: Strands of Abstraction, up through August 2 at the Loretta Howard Gallery in Chelsea.
