Caleb De Jong reviews Ann Pibal 'DRMN' at Meulensteen Gallery, New York on view through October 8, 2011.
De Jong writes: "While small, the work is not diminutive. Quietness leads to concentration that is parcel to the fundamental act of looking... Self-described as intuitive, her work is not painted linearly, but instead is made and remade, albeit carefully. Elliptical avenues of creation differentiate her from an overly strict formalist painting ethos."
Pibal's work is also on view at part of the exhibition Self Referral Non Objective on view at Feature, Inc., New York through October 1, 2011.
