Two Coats of Paint

September 18, 2020

Contributed by Jason Andrew / In a 1976 Cincinnati Enquirer review of Joan Snyder’s paintings, the reviewer, Owen Findsen, surmised that she had “picked up a little of this, a little of that … and made it all uglier.” While he found her work offensive, even questioning it’s validity, for those like me who have come to love Snyder’s work, it couldn’t be a bigger compliment. Joan Snyder paints her world from the inside out.

There is a hieroglyph in the Egyptian alphabet that is a representation of a pool with lotuses: the pictograph is a horizontal rectangle with a few stylized flowers and buds emerging from its top surface. There is something comforting about this cool little pool, the idea that it was part of a visual language, appearing in a text here and there, offering a phonetic component (“sha”) to words, but also reminding the reader of a place where they might seek refuge. 

Frank Stella Has Always Been a Star

October 7, 2020

On a recent day this fall, the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut, unveiled a new exhibition. Centered on star-focused works by master American artist Frank Stella, the show bursts with a sense of joy. And since the curatorial offering, which is formally titled “Frank Stella’s Stars, A Survey,” is scheduled to remain on view through early next May, there’s plenty of time to venture over to the constitutional state in order to see it.

In Berlin, the Art World Spreads Out to Stay Safe

In Berlin, the Art World Spreads Out to Stay Safe

By Scott Reyburn

SEPTEMBER 14, 2020

The first major international art event since the lockdown started took place at smaller venues around the city, rather than under a single roof.

BERLIN — It has been a long time coming, but after six months of coronavirus-enforced inactivity, the international art world was re-energized by a hectic week here of live exhibitions and events. With all the summer’s most important live art fairs, exhibitions and auctions canceled, Berlin Art Week, which ended Sunday, became the art world’s first significant international event since March.

Art Market The Differences between Prints, Multiples, and Editions

Art Market The Differences between Prints, Multiples, and Editions

By Shannon Lee

June 30, 2020

In the past few years, the market for prints, editions, and multiples has seen a dramatic uptick. Thanks in part to the popularity of artists who have made these types of replicated works major parts of their practices—like Banksy and KAWS—along with an accompanying surge of younger collectors whose tastes and budgets align with these media, dealers and auction houses have seen a growing appreciation for a category that long played second fiddle to painting and sculpture. Despite this marketplace momentum, one major sticking point remains: What, exactly, is the distinction between prints, editions, and multiples?

A Look Into The Art World | Recap of the Artnet Intelligence Report on Trends in the First Six Months of 2019

A Look Into The Art World | Recap of the Artnet Intelligence Report on Trends in the First Six Months of 2019

By Vivian Bossieux-Skinner

9/28/2019

The art world has taken a bit of a turn since last year diving from high sales possibly fueled by recent tax breaks and leaving total auction sales of works over $10 million down by 35 percent in the first six months of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018, according to the Spring 2019 Intelligence Report by Artnet News. Modern and Impressionist art was less profitable at auction in the first half of this year than it has been in the past, showing a 35% drop in the average price of a work, comparatively. Globally, Brexit is still having a negative effect on the U.K. art market, which is showing the lowest levels in over six years. France’s market is up by 13% - which, according to Artnet, predicts many sellers who would usually sell in London will turn to New York or French markets or sell privately instead. Artnet also shows that abstract painting is not as popular as it used to be – out of all top 10 contemporary artworks this season none were abstract. Currently the most popular trend is figurative painting, and buyers have a more diverse interest than has been observed in the past. “Big spenders are more open to work by women and artists of color, as well as artists who have near-celebrity pubic appeal but have been regarded with cynicism by the art world – like KAWS.”

Painters Reply, curated by Alex Glauber and Alex Logsdail, aims to answer the Artforum questionnaire through an exploration of experimental painting practices starting in the 1970s and continuing to the present moment. The selected artists reveal how the pervasive antipathy towards painting perhaps afforded a greater degree of latitude whereby materiality, application, atypical support, performative impulse and format were all of a sudden in play. The exhibition brings together a diverse group of artists, including some of those published in Artforum’s responses to the questionnaire such as Joan Snyder and Dona Nelson, where the common denominator is aesthetic emancipation.

"Epic Abstraction: Pollock to Herrera will begin in the 1940s and extend into the twenty-first century to explore large-scale abstract painting, sculpture, and assemblage through more than fifty works from The Met collection, a selection of loans, and promised gifts and new acquisitions. Iconic works from The Met collection, such as Jackson Pollock's classic "drip" painting Autumn Rhythm (1950) and Louise Nevelson's monumental Mrs. N's Palace (1964–77), will be shown in conversation with works by international artists, such as Japanese painter Kazuo Shiraga and the Hungarian artist Ilona Keserü. The exhibition will be punctuated with special loans of major works by Helen Frankenthaler, Carmen Herrera, Shiraga, Joan Snyder, and Cy Twombly."

My Mother's Altar: Joan Snyder Paints to Face Herself

My Mother's Altar: Joan Snyder Paints to Face Herself

by Molly Snyder-Fink

Fall/Winter 2018

My mother has spoken about being at an altar when she paints. “It is the altar I go to face myself.” And “Art,” she says, “became a form of worship. Those were my shrines,” speaking about her altar paintings made in the mid-sixties. 5 Her work is her self-created spirituality. It is her calling. She reaches new levels of comprehension about the meaning of life by throwing down herbs upon canvas, awash with glossy green paint and golden glitter. In the 1960s, when “the personal is political” became a rallying cry, my mother was in step with the times. Her early altar paintings from that decade were abstracted versions of the female body, and she would often add tacky materials like gold fringe or fake leopard skin.

Hyperallergic: Frank Stella's Riotous Interpretation of Moby Dick

Hyperallergic: Frank Stella's Riotous Interpretation of Moby Dick

By Zachary Small

10/25/18

For an artist who once famously shrugged off deep analysis of minimalism by saying, “What you see is what you see,” Frank Stella's Moby Dick prints are firework furies of expressionistic colors and pattern work. Currently on view at Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art, a selection of works from Stella’s Moby Dick series displays the artist’s entrancement with Melville’s epic tale.

The mixed-media intaglio prints of the Moby Dick engravings are solemn in their black and white tonalities enlivened with subtle washes of color. In abstract terms, Stella conveys a dramatic sense of roiling waters and breaching whales. The expressive gravity of this series is caught up in the title
“Jonah Historically regarded”, a reference to chapter 83 of the novel. The Old Testament story of Jonah, who deserts God and is thrown overboard during a storm at sea and swallowed by a whale, but who lives to submit to God’s will, is a central metaphor in Melville’s grand narrative.

Black Genius: Roy DeCarava at Anders Wahlstedt

by Terence Trouillot in artcritical magazine

May 7th, 2016

A lot has been said on the idea of “black genius” of late. In February, at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem, Dr. Jordana Saggese, Kim Drew, Dr. David Clinton Wills and Juliana Huxtable were part a symposium titled “Basquiat and Contemporary Queer Art,” focusing on Jean-Michel Basquiat as a symbol of black genius. In March, critic Jason Parham, in a review of Kanye West’s Life of Pablo (2016) and Kendrick Lamar’s untitled unmastered (2016) for Fader, called “On the Occasion of Black Genius,” wrote at length about the concept.

The Exotic Bird Series prints

09/24/15

Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art is honored to be able to exhibit the complete set of the six prints Frank Stella made for the Exotic Bird Series in 1977. The exuberant lithograph/screenprints of the Exotic Bird Series were based on six configurations of the metal-relief-paintings by the same name. The more expansive and loosened drawing style and larger scale introduced in the Exotic Bird prints, qualities that would continue to characterize the later prints, were inherited from Stella's work in painting.
