Altoon Sultan blogs about the recent exhibition of works by James Bishop at David Zwirner Gallery, New York.
Sultan notes that Bishop's paintings "require long and careful attention. Their architectonic structure emerges slowly from the subtly brushed and pooled layers of paint." In Untitled (1980), she writes "you will see the exquisitely balanced color relationships, bringing a gentle light forward; the horizontal band is slightly brighter than the vertical, indicating a delicate shift in the space. The structure seems to be part of the canvas itself."
