John Haber reviews the exhibition "..." featuring paintings by Scott Reeder, Sam Moyer, Kadar Brock, and Matt Jones, recently on view at The Hole, New York.

Haber writes that the artists in the exhibition "are haunted. Not so much by the ghosts of abstraction past, although they will surely haunt the viewer. Who left so many thin traces and dense weaves. Who left several decades of art obsessed with poured paint and spatters, geometry and randomness, excess and absence of color, inscrutable layers and scarred canvas?"
