The inaugural edition was a surprisingly big success. As year two kicks off, here's what to look for.
Last year, the fledgling new art fair Taipei Dangdai: Art & Ideas made mincemeat of the commonly held belief that it takes a fair a few years to build a solid art world following. The inaugural edition turned out big-name blue-chip galleries, famed global collectors (and Chinese movie stars), and, most importantly, robust sales. Oh, and yes, the fair even had its very own giant inflatable KAWS sculpture to draw in the crowds.
Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects is pleased to announce the gallery’s eighth solo exhibition of new work by Patrick Wilson.
Patrick Wilson’s intensely colorful canvases are populated by hard-edged, quadrilateral planes in varying opacities, layered and cantilevered in carefully finessed compositions. His new works reflect an increasingly energetic complexity that Lilly Wei has described in a recent essay as “breathtaking and nuanced, the juxtapositions [between colors] often quirky and unpredictable.”
OCMA has always championed artistic experimentation and innovation through a commitment to showing and collecting the work of dynamic and groundbreaking emerging artists. This installation will reveal how impactful OCMA has been in supporting the careers of some of the most influential artists from this region, often at pivotal moments in their careers.
Patrick Wilson’s paintings—a number of which are now on view at Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe in New York—benefit from a slow, prolonged, and introspective viewing. Precise compositions of squares and a considered rhythm of colors beckon the viewer past the painting’s surface and into a space that grows more and more palpable. Like some of life’s greatest pleasures, the appeal is visceral: “I want the paintings to be seductive like a really good meal and really good wine,” he recently told Artsy.
Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe and Artsy held a private preview and walk-through of Patrick Wilson's exhibition, 28 May - 3 July 2015, with the artist.
A Lesson in Geometry By Jean Cohen
Listen to Patrick Wilson, see his new paintings in Chelsea (at Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe) and take away some art history. What Wilson has done for 20 years—works of elegant color, flatness and right angles—may seem, at first, the offspring of other art born out of geometry since the mid-20th century. But paintings by Wilson look like no one else's.
In the paintings of Los Angeles-based artist Patrick Wilson, layered squares of color attain unbelievable levels of transparency and rich density. Wilson uses humble tools: he applies acrylic paint with a drywall knife or house paint roller to geometric areas of canvas edged by masking tape. Yet, in both large-scale canvases and smaller works on panel, the works’ spatial constraints seem only to distill and enhance the pigment.
Building on the rich tradition of geometric abstraction, three one-person exhibitions take the visual language of line, form, and color in compelling directions. In the first part of the 20th century, artists such as Wassily Kandinksky (1866-1944), Kasimir Malevich (1878-1935), and Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) explored a vocabulary of simple geometric forms—rectangles, triangles, squares, and line—in abstract compositions that addressed universal truths and utopian ideas. This tradition, carried forth, expanded, and transformed over the course of the 20th century, continues into the present with innovative approaches to the genre by:
If Patrick Wilson tossed a pebble into a pond, the ripples that emanated from it would probably take the shape of perfectly formed squares or nicely proportioned rectangles. That is the image his exhibition, “Steak Night,” leaves the viewer: an impossible change to the laws of nature that brings you face to face with a world more beautiful that the real one.
Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects is pleased to announce the gallery's sixth solo exhibition for new work by Patrick Wilson. Wilson is known for creating finely calibrated, luminous abstract paintings composed of lines and quadrilaterals. He uses a simple and straightforward medium, paint on canvas, to build a richly layered composition of complex spatial dynamics.
University Art Museum (UAM) at California State University Long Beach will present twelve radiant new and recent geometric abstract paintings in Patrick Wilson: Pull. Wilson’s intricately layered compositions wed glowing color fields to structured shapes. Transparent squares, rectangles and narrow lines of acrylic paint draw the viewer into the pulsating depths of his fresh artworks. Three works on paper from the 2008 series, Suite for Mount Washington, will also be included in the exhibition. These gouache serigraphs, made under the master printer Christian Zickler, directly influenced the complex visual syntax that presently informs his current painting practice.
Local Color is drawn from the San Jose Museum of Art's permanent collection and explores the privacy of color in a range of works. This exhibition encourages viewers to look at color as content and features the work of Josef Albers, Fletcher Benton, Ellen Carey, Mary Corse, Tony DeLap, Sam Francis, Sonia Gechtoff, James Hayward, Paul Jenkins, Amy Kaufman, Markus Linnenbrink, Nathan Oliveira, Raimonds Strapans, Amy Trachtenberg and Patrick Wilson, among others. click here : www.sjmusart.org
Los Angeles painter Patrick Wilson presents a magnificent new body of his brilliantly constructed, abstract acrylic on canvas paintings in his highly anticipated third solo exhibition Slow Motion Action Painting at Marx & Zavattero, June 2 - July 14, 2012. Wilson’s paintings are conceived with the ideas of beauty and pleasure at the forefront. As the title of the exhibition suggests, Wilson is inviting his viewers to enter the gallery, and then consciously slow down in order to actively experience his work in the same manner in which it was created.
Complicating things does not necessarily enrich them. But the newly complex work of Los Angeles painter Patrick Wilson at Marx & Zavattero extends the range of subtlety and ambiguity that has always given his art substance.
Patrick Wilson is on a self-professed quest for beauty in the realm of color and form. His search takes him back to 20th-century abstract colorists and reaches forward into contemporary, technology-dominated, urban life. Such rigorous study of color relationships, careful observation of artificial and natural light, and references to technological motifs yield complex and sublime results.
Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new paintings by Los Angeles based artist Patrick Wilson in galleries 3 and 4. On view will be a range of new paintings in which Wilson continues to translate color and light into luminous and flawlessly calibrated abstractions. Wilson's technique is straightforward - using drywall blades, rollers and masking tape he moves color around in controlled areas. The resulting compositions are elaborately layered squares, rectangles and lines of stunning color and radiance. Alternating between surfaces where the paint has been rolled on and where translucent layers are being pulled repeatedly over the surface, Wilson crates a spectacle of great beauty, in which the painting alternately offers resistance to the eye or pulls the viewer into glowing fields of brilliant depth.
Modernism's grandest break with art history was not its pursuit of the minimal but its abandonment of technical virtuosity. Wilson remains the most ambitious, dextrous and mind-bogglingly precise painter working in abstraction in many years... maybe ever. If you never imagined a mesmerized audience staring at a descendent of Malevich with the "how does he do it" look in their eyes usually reserved for photorealists, get down and see this nearly sold-out show.click here : www.huffingtonpost.com
The fall art season is in full swing, and there is an overwhelming amount of painting on display at galleries throughout the United States. I expanded my usual Must See list from ten to twelve exhibitions, but I could have easily selected more. As always, I primarily focused on emerging artists, although more established figures such as Susan Rothenberg and Lari Pittman are on the list with impressive new bodies of work.
