Julian Kreimer reviews the recent exhibition Rubens Ghenov: Accoutrements in Marwa, an Interlude in Sliver at Morgan Lehman Gallery, New York.

Kreimer writes: "Ghenov has absorbed the poet’s mantra that the fewer elements in a work, the more each of them matters... [his] ability to balance a powerful sense of nostalgia with an intensely slippery visual effect lends his paintings a distinctive voice."
