Paul Behnke pays a visit to Patricia Satterlee's Bushwick studio.
Behnke writes: "Satterlee"s large paintings on paper are unique for a number of reasons. First, they are large, at a time when many Brooklyn painters are scaling down. Second, and more importantly, they combine the rough spontaneity of the preliminary sketch with an elegant, minimal thoughtfulness that one usually associates with theory-heavy formal work. A language has evolved here."
Painted Drawings: Recent Work by Patricia Satterlee is on view at Norte Maar through October 23, 2011.
