Tamar Zinn blogs about the work of Ilse D'Hollander, on view at Sean Kelly Gallery, New York through February 6, 2016.

Zinn writes: "In her intimately sized canvases and works on paper, D'Hollander transformed elements from the landscape and built world into abstractions, alternating between vigorous visual statements and more tentative, suggestive explorations. The tension present in all of her work captures the viewer's gaze and invites contemplation... The paintings appear to be thoughtfully considered and bold, yet they also embody elements of uncertainty and mystery."
