Josephine Halvorson: What Looks Back

Image coming soon.

Caleb De Jong reviews the exhibition Josephine Halvorson: What Looks Back at Sikkema Jenkins & Co., on view through December 4, 2011.

De Jong notes that "Similar to Tuymans, Halvorson's paintings were made in a single sitting but depart from the Belgian in that she paints her work from nature, in what appears to be low twilight. Reaching further back, Halvorson perceives her subjects with the same intentionality as the pair of New Mexico artists Georgia O'Keefe and Agnes Martin. Perception for O'Keefe, Martin and Halvorson entails sustained repetition, bordering on the maniacal edging towards the mystical."
