Christopher Stout blogs about the exhibition Paul Pagk: 18 Drawings and 1 Painting at Studio 10 Gallery, Bushwick, Brooklyn, on view through May 5, 2013.
Stout writes: “The drawings are all wonderful; however, the new painting, keenly titled Double Entente, stands out as the high point of the exhibition. [Gallery Director Lawrence] Greenberg describes Double Entente as, ‘A large painting of cadmium maroon and white … divided by two white parallel elements. The strict, incised forms strike like austere hieroglyphs through the thickly layered skin of the ground. Image, surface and linear activity are equally subjects of the composition for Pagk.'”
