This month in Los Angeles, artist Anish Kapoor has brought forth a new body of large-scale paintings that continue the artist’s mining of visceral experience, phenomenological experiments and dense, colorful compositions as a site for the visualization of the perceptual experience. Over the last 40 years, Kapoor has engaged a diverse range of media and materials to probe the qualities and contradictions of form and perception. This is the artist’s seventh exhibition with the gallery since 1992 and the first devoted entirely to his painting practice. Read More »

Currently exhibiting at Ross+Kramer Gallery’s Chelsea location is Chinese artist Jess Xiaoyi Han’s debut solo show Implosion, a series of her most recent paintings which explore abstract articulations of internal fluctuation and transformation. This new body of work, painted with alkyd on canvas, reflects an evolution in the young artist’s meticulously controlled and expressionistic style —the compositions are increasingly crowded with frenetic arrangements while still maintaining a cohesive and meditative fluency. Han’s luminous canvases, saturated with a vibrant, candy-colored palette, burst with streams of fluid brushstrokes, emanating a sense of dynamic movement through illusionistic space.

For over two decades, artist Kara Walker (b. 1969) has been making work that weaves together imagery from the antebellum South, the brutality of slavery, and racist stereotypes. Her work has stirred controversy for its use of exaggerated caricatures that reflect long-standing racialized and gendered stereotypes and for its lurid depictions of history. This mode of work takes center stage in a body of new prints on view this spring at the New York Historical Society, which challenge and re-examine methods of depiction and representation of history through pointed interjection.
