EJ Hauser blogs images from the exhibition Tamara Gonzales: Unititled at Norte Maar, Bushwick, on view through April 29, 2012, as well as photos from a visit to Gonzales' studio.

The gallery notes that Gonzales' new paintings "spring to the optical extreme through her unique process of spray painting through found lace tablecloths, doilies, and curtains. Vibrant and witty, layered and textured, the artist combines large gesture with tight pattern to create compositions that at once mimic the grand heroic gestures of the postwar painters, while capturing all-over free spirit found in the graffiti that appears daily on the streets near her Bushwick studio."
