TOM THAYER AND DAVE MIKO: MOVING IMAGES

Tom Thayer and Dave Miko have paired up to create a series of video installations at Eleven Rivington’s exhibition space at 195 Chrystie St (the exhibition was on view through March 17th). Tom Thayer’s animations and assemblages were included in the 2012 Whitney Biennial, they are a kind of dark atmospheric storytelling pulling from the language of puppetry and theatre. Dave Miko’s work is a more straight forward painting process, at times including the use of hand written text with oil on aluminum and recently, installations of wall sized drip and spray paint paintings. Miko was included in the Greater New York show at MoMA PS1 in 2010.

12 to Watch in 2012: Publisher’s Picks

2011 was a strong year for the ever-resilient medium of painting as artists continued to push the idea of just what a painting can be in terms of materials, scale and subject. I expect that 2012 will be no different. Over the past twelve months I visited hundreds of gallery exhibitions and did dozens of studio visits. Because of New American Paintings, I was also privileged to review the work of the more than 5,000 artists who applied to our competitions in 2011.
