Richard Pousette-Dart: East River Studio

Caleb de Jong reviews the exhibition Richard Pousette-Dart: East River Studio at Luhring Augustine, on view through December 17, 2011.

De Jong notes that the"works on display were created in a five year period from 1946-1951… [and are] raw and gorgeously incoherent. Bordering on the amateur, Pousette-Dart undermines any classicism inherent in abstract art's utopian promise. Restricting himself to black and white, as Pollock and de Kooning had during this time, Pousette-Dart moved away from the refined elegance displayed by those two artist’s efforts into a funky eclecticism."
