Thomas Nozkowski @ Albright-Knox

Tyler Green blogs about Thomas Nozkowski's 2009 painting Untitled (8-117) now on view at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo. Green writes that "The 'background' of the painting seems to emit pulses of light, but the yellow bulb in the center-foreground seems to glow steadily... for all that bouncing-light vibration, the surface of the painting is flat and nearly anti-painterly... The effect here is that the canvas didn’t emerge from an artist’s studio, but that it has always existed."
