Back in December, I wrote an article in which I suggested that, after a number of years in which abstraction has been the dominant mode of painting in the “contemporary art world,” we might start to see an upswing in image-based painting. It is not exactly a Delphic prophecy given the way in which today’s market driven art world is constantly craving the next best thing, and, I might add, in ever more compressed cycle times.

Must See Painting Shows: April

More than twenty alumni of New American Paintings are featured in exhibitions around the country this month. If you live in New York City, be sure to catch Franklin Evans' exhibition at Sue Scott Gallery. Evans continues to push the medium of painting in a way that blurs the line between painting, sculpture and installation.

She has always exhibited an extraordinary sensitivity for form and space; her latest works continue this exploration with a variety of media.
