Gideon Bok: Sound & Vision

Image coming soon.

Bradley Rubenstein reviews the exhibition Gideon Bok: Record Store on view at Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects, New York, through October 8, 2011.

Rubenstein writes: "The subject is the record sleeve, which lies horizontally, creating a trapezoidal shape within the LP-sized panel. [Bok] paints with a rough, expressive hand while listening to the album he is depicting, linking the paint handling with its musical counterpart; Kandinsky attempted this synesthetic experience also in his work… Bok elaborates on or obscures the original cover art (in itself an art form of the past), showing how our “perspective” of the work shifts by our perceptions of it."
