Shirley Goldfarb @ Loretta Howard

Randee Silv reviews the exhibition Shirley Goldfarb: A Retrospective at Loretta Howard Gallery, New York, on view through June 8, 2013.

Silv writes: "Evident in [Goldfarb's] large-scale canvases, White Painting (1962) and Pink Painting (1964), Goldfarb deliberately compressed her broad strokes into smaller gestural variations of rhythmic dialogues, inviting viewers to converse if they’d like. Deciding to put aside her brushes, she began conducting the paint directly from the tube. It was curious to note how Goldfarb strategically placed 'spots' of color with a palette knife in Yellow Triptych (1966) that visually travelled back and forth in circulating motion that came in and out of focus."
