Alan Shields

Steven Alexander visits the exhibition Alan Shields, Something Goin' On & On on view at Greenberg Van Doren Gallery, New York through June 24, 2011.  Alexander writes that Shields' work is " ...deeply rooted in a ritualization of the painting process and an assertion of art-making as an ancient practice... the large paintings possess a rich merger of painterly field and constructed objecthood -- at once offhanded and painstakingly built."
