Erik Saxon

Sharon Butler posts about the exhibition Erik Saxon: Select Works, 1973-2011 on view through June 11, 2011 at Minus Space, Brooklyn, NY.  Butler writes that "Saxon was a core member of the Radical Painting Group active in NYC during the 1970s and 1980s. The RPG stressed a return to the core concerns of painting, focusing primarily on the monochrome... For the past thirty years, Saxon has worked with the monochrome and it's relationship to its surroundings--the wall, the floor, its location within the exhibition space, and the viewer."
