Peter Young: Empire of Dirt

Image coming soon.

Michael Bilsborough reviews an exhibition of paintings by Peter Young at Algus Greenspon Gallery, New York, on view through November 3, 2012.

In addition to providing a history of Young's career, Bilsborough discusses individual paintings. He writes: "The Algus Greenspon exhibition brings us the most recent paintings, selected from a series made between 1995 and 2004. All of the paintings are acrylic and graphite on canvas, built in layers of colorful, splashy grounds; traced, overlapping ellipses; and opaque white-outs. They might surprise you with depths and densities that take a moment to unwind… These works convey confidence without bravura and expedience without racing. This might be what the gallery’s press release means by 'radiant tentativeness.' "
