Thomas Nozkowski


Thomas Nozkowski  R 4  2001  oil on museum board  12 3/4" x 15 3/4"
michaelbergergallery.com

Thomas Nozkowski makes wonderfully evocative abstract paintings, prints and drawings. He usually works on a smallish scale with simple tools like a brush, paint and pencils. What strikes me with his work is the consistency of his vision and modesty of his materials. There is nothing bombastic or over blown with his approach. Each image is worked and reworked until it coalesces into a finished piece. The work seems to free associate itself into existence. Although the work is complex the finished piece never seems labored over, it is as if he willed them into the world and we, the viewers. are the beneficiaries.

One of Chicago's finest artists, Conger continues to make wonderful paintings as witnessed at the  Bruno David Gallery in Saint Louis. He just seems to get better with age and is one of a select few painters I wish I had collected when I was in Chicago.

Roger Brown had one of the most recognizable styles of the Chicago Imagist group. His utopian/dystopian scenes of the world were and continue to be icons of a great imagination and insight into the human condition. His painting skills were off the charts. Gone way too early.

Holly Coulis


Holly Coulis  Large Lemon, Stripes, Knives  2017  oil on linen  24.13" x 30.13"
cherryandmartin.com

Holly Coulis' new paintings at Cherry and Martin are exquisite in their execution. The artist has a way of handling oil paint that goes beyond craftsmanship and takes it to the sublime. The delicate line work and subtle modulation of color within the shapes she chooses takes the narrative to another space altogether. The work reminds me a bit of Trevor Winkfield's, but instead of symbols she chooses the every day items one would encounter in the kitchen, garden or other elements of domesticity. Like Morandi, she infuses the every day with a charm and almost mystical quality.

Christina Ramberg


Christina Ramberg (1946-1995 ) Untitled Torso With Pants  1982  acrylic on masonite  13" x 11.5"
corbettvsdempsey.com

Christina Ramberg's painting Untitled Torso With Pants is a great example of how a artist can say so much with so little. Her narrative on women in our culture during her shortened life is alive today as much or more so than when she painted it in 1982. Her ability to bring forth a dialectic that included gender, bias and femininity with her painting was admired by me then and is perhaps even more salient today.

David Lloyd is having a one person exhibition of new paintings at Klowden Mann in Culver City opening this Sat. Jan. 28. Any one in L A interested in painting from an artist that has been around a while should try and attend. He is an eloquent speaker and fine painter. Should his current exhibition be as interesting as his last ( and I'm sure it will be) this will be an excellent opportunity to see a seasoned painter in his prime.
