Martha Schwendener reviews Dana DeGiulio & Molly Zuckerman-Hartung: Queen at Lyles & King, New York, on view through February 7, 2016.

Schwendener writes: "DeGiulio’s paintings take a simple trope, the floral still life, and remake it into a black-and-white postpunk-type affair. Call it Manet for the millennium, after his late flower paintings... If ... DeGiulio’s art plays it cool ... Zuckerman-Hartung’s work is a firestorm of techniques and effects: bleaching, dyeing, staining and sewing linen, silk and humble dropcloths."
