Lynn Maliszewski reviews Joe Fyfe, Wood/Cloth/Color at James Graham & Sons. Fyfe's work eschews paint while "enlivening a familiar language with vivid colors and patterns, and a new kind of layering and transparency... With pigment-in-tubes abandoned, color and shape simply abide, while lines of glue and gentle puckers of the fabric trace the absent artist's hand."
Artist Kate Beck blogs about the work of Anne Lindberg. In Lindberg's installations staples and Egyptian cottom thread become atmospheric masses of color. Beck writes: "Anne Lindberg procures line as an element configuring real space, making it universally sensible, plausible -- as drawing is." As in painting, these installations live through a convincing interplay between drawing and color.
