In Process: Brooke Moyse

Studio view of new works
Studio view

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 . . . .

Remainder @ Philbrook Museum Of Art

Rachel Beach, Hawk, 2012, plywood, veneer, oil and acrylic

Remainder through September 29, 2013
From the press release:
Remainder brings together recent work by seven young, up-and-coming female sculptors: Diana Al-Hadid, Rachel Beach, Rachel Foullon, Kate Gilmore, Heather Rowe, Erin Shirreff, and Allyson Vieira. The sculpture presented in this exhibition is primarily abstract, but pulls influence from the physical framing of space, including buildings, architectural plans and models, gardens, and even modern sculpture. Many of these references recall the recent past, with inflections of twentieth century art and design. Others elicit ancient cultures, with vaguely primeval forms.
