Sanford Wurmfeld: Color Visions

Image coming soon.

John Yau writes about the exhibition Sanford Wurmfeld: Color Visions 1966 – 2013 at the Hunter College/Times Square Gallery, New York, on view through April 30, 2013.

Yau notes: "Wurmfeld’s deep historical research in the field of color theory is unrivaled. He is, in that regard, both a painter and a scholar, a combination the art world distrusts. Formalist academics and critics have spent years cleaving thinking from craft, believing the latter to be obsolete and unnecessary, rather than a matter of necessity and urgency… It is impossible to enumerate all the different things that Wurmfeld does with color, and all the effects he achieves, from an optical buzz to a kind of luminous fog that seems to float in front of the surface — something that J. M. W. Turner and Agnes Martin get in some of their work."
