Altoon Sultan blogs about Svenja Deininger: Untitled/Head at Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York, on view through November 14, 2015.

Sultan writes that the show "is a deeply satisfying one: there is a sense of exploration, of expanding ideas; there is also a wonderful sensitivity to the weights of color and shape. Each of 12 paintings in this show, large or small, has beautifully realized surfaces: they are smooth and glassy, or revealing of the canvas beneath the color, or richly textured."
