A. Zlotowitz reviews Rosy Keyser: The Hell Bitch at Maccarone Gallery, New York, on view through June 6, 2015.

Zlotowitz writes that in her recent work, Keyser "continues the discourse of painterly reduction. While breaking away from the traditional frame, Keyser’s works allow for viewers to consider definitions of empathy, profanity and form through her patchwork assemblages, fixed to the classic signifier of the canvas stretcher... Keyser’s works here hold great reminiscence to the combines of Robert Rauschenberg with hints of Thornton Dial, and her often appropriated, mixed media techniques force each of her paintings to fill their surfaces (or at least what exists of them) with feeling and movement."
