Steven Alexander blogs about the exhibition Leif Kath: Everlasting Disorder at Elizabeth Harris Gallery, New York, on view through July 27, 2012.

Alexander writes that "the group of paintings convey an open-ended playfulness that is supported by the casual handmade quality of each painting's surface. It is evident that the compositions are not predetermined, but are arrived at through the painting process, pushing to achieve unorthodox rhythms and dramatic contrasts. We can sense in this work the artist's enchantment with the endless possibilities before him, each painting a moment in a fluent stream of variations."
