PORN IN THE WOODS - DEVON DUNHILL CLAPP AT et al projects

By tackling taboo subject matter with an abject attitude, Devon Dunhill Clapp’s die weiße Schweinehund was an exciting way to end 2012. Clapp’s work is inspired by a dark side of the human experience. Internet dumping grounds like “space ghetto” and true horror stories from rides on the New York subway generate the imagery for his work.

Up all night: Q&A with Ted Gahl

Ted Gahl's new exhibition (and first solo exhibition in New York City) Night Painter, on view at Dodge Gallery though November 13th, includes an honest and uninhibited array of works that suspend memories and personal symbology in the thin stratum of Gahl's painted surfaces.  Dense but not overcrowded, minimal paintings serve as visual respite between larger, tangled compositions where the referential and abstract overlap.  Within the dark and specific palette, each painting begins to read as a different element of memory, meditation, dream, insomnia and delirium.

But taking stock of one’s own life is far from a political act, and Kramer’s work is probably too introspective to be social activism.
