Donald Kuspit reviews the recent exhibition Vincent Desiderio at Marlborough Chelsea, New York.
Kuspit writes: "Narrative, drama, the indecent human story... returns with an ironical vengeance in Vincent Desiderio's paintings... Even as Desiderio attempts to achieve a new modern classicism... he cannot help but suggest the black shadow that modernism has cast over art."
Rebecca Harp writes about painting which she considers to be a "verbal, therapeutic version" of thinking about painting. She considers specifically the qualities of abstraction that are meaningful to a figurative painter.
Edited by artist Brett Baker, Painters' Table highlights writing from the painting blogosphere as it is published and serves as a platform for exploring blogs that focus primarily on the subject of painting.
