Harriet Korman: Tremolo Effect

Deven Golden reviews the exhibition Harriet Korman: New Paintings at Lennon Weinberg, Inc., New York, on view through April 14, 2012.

Golden notes a "curious element to these artworks that may at first elude notice, so infrequently is it a factor: they are 100% flat. In his famous 1955 essay 'Modernist Painting', Clement Greenberg suggested that to move forward painting should eschew the traditional depiction of space in favor of embracing the reality of the essential flatness of the painting surface. Yet while this concept has found a secure place in the practice of art, it is hard to name abstract painters from Greenberg's time to ours whose paintings actually appear without any illusion of visual depth."
