Two Coats of Paint




Editor: Sharon Butler
Description: "I created Two Coats of Paint to share reviews, commentary, news, and background information about painting and related subjects."
Current posts:
. Michelle Forsyth at Auxiliary Projects in Bushwick
. Mario Naves and Brett Baker at Elizabeth Harris Gallery
" Where Naves paints thin and elegantly hard edge, keeping his lively images on the surface, Baker goes thick and clotty, creating small-scale blocks of abstraction, seemingly squeezed directly from the tube. Baker's paintings are darker and more obsessive than Naves, and they suggest that he is entertaining a philosophical question, trying to convince himself that, despite all practical evidence to the contrary, meaning resides in the process. And so he continues--we all do."
