Peter Acheson writes about the exhibition David Paulson: Recent Works at Jonathan Burden LLC, New York, on view through June 23, 2012.
Acheson writes that Paulson "wants to shoulder the weights carried by Cubism, DeChirico, DeKooning, Soutine and Guston one more time before their issues are deemed irrevelant to the contemporary dialogue. He is confronting them and their legacy straight on. He is not 'referencing' them, in today's parlance. He is INFLUENCED, he is in love. If painting cannot reach for the drama that their work reaches then it is irrelevant."
