Other Voices: Squeak Carnwath

Squeak Carnwath mixes familiar and recognizable images-think New Image painting- within a smart, sharp fields of patterns built of numbers and colors then overlaid with words. Carnwath's fields look conceptual; they are methodical in structure like an algebraic formula on a  blackboard but then suffused with thoughts that stand out-a translation of her internal dialogue out loud onto the canvas for all to see.  Like Mel Bochner's recent language paintings and prints, or Joseph Kosuth's room size neon sculpture, Carnwath has been using words for many decades.

Other Voices: Robert Baribeau

In the countryside north of NYC Robert Baribeau has been feverishly at work on a thirty-year exploration of the impact of landscape and place on abstraction. He is the measure of what he purveys and so his canvases and paintings on paper are simple declarations or essays on the way in which all aspects of nature can be construed through color, form and texture.  While for some painters nature is translated in terms of representation or naturalism, Baribeau measures landscape through the dynamics of color and texture.
