WATERCOLOR: PAINTINGS BY CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS
Release date: April 15, 2013, Chronicle Books
Preface by Sujean Rim, Introduction by Leslie Dutcher
Featuring artwork by twenty-one artists including

A quote from Leslie Dutcher's introduction:

". . . Thomsen's rooms, as well as her landscapes, give the viewer the perspective of being fully immersed in their spaces--in fact, her watercolors are unusually large, some nearly wall-sized. They further evoke the palette and sparseness of a van Gogh painting--the post-Impressionist painter also worked in watercolor and created many distinctive works less textured than the oil paintings that most associate with his oeuvre."

Group Exhibit curated by Samantha Friedman. She writes in her catalog essay:

In the last decade of the 19th century, the group of painters known as the Nabis blurred the distinction between high art and interior decoration with a new style of painting. Taking cues from Gauguin, Sérusier, and Puvis de Chavannes (and succeeded soon after by Matisse) artists like Vuillard, Bonnard, Denis and Roussel incorporated the all-over patterns of voguish Oriental carpets and Art Deco wallpaper into their compositions. continue reading, download pdf

STUDIO RELOCATES TO HISTORIC BROOKLYN NAVY YARD

I'm on the third floor of a 1903 structure, the long red brick building below on left (west) side of dry dock 4. It's building #131 which my friend John Bartelstone told me was a former riggers shop. The east-facing windows in my space look out on an enormous sky, dry docks, Steiner Studios, and Wallabout Bay. continue reading . . .
