Sharon Butler previews Susan Jane Walp: Paintings on Paper at Tibor de Nagy, New York, on view from September 10 - October 17, 2015.

Butler writes that Walp's "still life paintings on paper conjure both the extraordinary flower paintings that Manet made on his sickbed in 1882, and Morandi's remarkable still lifes. If anything can coax contemporary painters to use brushes again, perhaps the sensitivity of Walp's brushwork might do it."
