Jonathan Monk at Casey Kaplan – March 30 to May 5, 2007

“…Jonathan Monk, will present a new body of work that takes shape from key principles of Conceptual art — the favoring of ideas over object-making, serialism, the dematerialization of the art object — interpreting them with a playful sensibility and through a variety of media: 16 mm film, painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, and a laser light installation.”

Andreas Hofer

Andreas Hofer at Metro Pictures – March 23 to April 21, 2007

“For his New York debut, Andreas Hofer presents “Only Gods Could Survive,” a haunting and hallucinogenic installation of sculpture, painting, drawing and collage…Using subject matter that includes comic book heroes, science fiction, bygone Hollywood and symbols of the Third Reich, Hofer extracts these signs from a forbidden world, producing artworks that traverse time to become an ominous and fanciful meditation on history and popular culture.”

Karel Funk at 303 Gallery – March 10 to April 7, 2007

“Karel Funk’s paintings are made with layers of thin paint that reflect light, influenced by Dutch and Flemish painters of the 17th century and Renaissance portraiture, as well as by American figurative painters from the past 20 years and their relationship to photography based work. In the end, the tenderness of each painstaking detail that goes into Funk’s handling brings the viewer closer to the subjects, even as they turn further away from us.”
