Altoon Sultan blogs about the exhibition Suzanne Caporael: Enough is Plenty at Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe, New York, on view through November 23, 2013.

Sultan writes that Caporael's collages are "stunning in their simplicity of color and shape, their absolute rightness of form. There was some whimsy in the color choices––red polka dots against violets and blue––which is odd when one realizes that all the paper was cut from that most august and serious of newspapers, the New York Times... These modest works are utterly satisfying; their ordinary materials and small size add power and meaning rather than diminishing it. When I can enter a world newly made, from the stuff of everyday, it is an enlarging experience."
