John Haber reviews the two part exhibition Pour at Asya Geisberg Gallery and Lesley Heller Workspace, New York, on view through May 24, 2013. The shows, curated by Elisabeth Condon and Carol Prusa, feature works by Ingrid Calame, Kris Chatterson, Roland Flexner, Angelina Gualdoni, Carrie Moyer, Carolanna Parlato, David Reed, Jackie Saccoccio, and Carrie Yamaoka.
Haber writes that "the nine artists in 'Pour,' ... do that and more... Most of all, though, this is a revisiting of the pour. For these artists, pour it on becomes as much metaphor as medium. It is that eternal dance between presence and absence and then some—that trace of a trace of a trace."
