Sharon Butler blogs about the exhibition of new paintings by Susan Rothenberg on view at Sperone Westwater, New York through October 29 2011.

Butler notes: " the driving force in Rothenberg's work continues to be the combination of agitated brushstroke and idiosyncratic composition, which enables the painter to move convincingly from perceptual study of the world around her to more symbolic imagery, such as acrobats and detached heads."
