Mary Heilmann: Life into Art

Image coming soon.

Altoon Sultan blogs about the recent exhibition Mary Heilmann: Geometrics: Waves, Roads, etc., at 303 Gallery, New York.

Sultan writes: "With a quick glance, we might think that Mary Heilmann is a formalist abstract artist, concerned with issues of shape and color, with the unity or breaking of the picture plane. But, what to make of shocking pink stepped forms or of perspectival rectangular shapes, disappearing like road markings into the distance, and titled after a popular song? Heilmann uses the language of formalist painting to deny the formal: to evoke memories, allude to stories, to activate the sensuous."
