Tom Chen blogs about the work of Swiss painter Caro Niederer now on view at Hauser & Wirth, New York through July 27, 2012.
Chen writes that Niederer's recent work focuses on "everyday subjects, like a kitchen table with a vase of flowers, a street in front of her home, or the basketball court where her kids play. Standing out against the vibrant color palette prevalent in most of her paintings are two sepia-toned 'Brown Paintings.' Like blown-up old time photographs, the paintings exude a warm and gentle light that guides us through what the artist calls 'common subjects.' "
The post includes a video interview with Niederer where she discusses her recent paintings.
