Stephen Westfall: Purism Off Kilter

Image coming soon.

David Cohen writes about painter Stephen Westfall’s work and its influence on his recent curatorial efforts.

Cohen notes “At first [Westfall’s] compositions strike the viewer as well-behaved structures of pattern with decorative correlates in the applied arts… But his visual wit goes beyond mere reference to recent abstract art history. A key element in his vocabulary is the disruptive kink he will admit into his patterning that sets it off kilter; never quite subverting the flatness of the picture plane, he nonetheless allows a breeze or ripple to run across the composition.”

Ghost In the Machine, curated by Stephen Westfall is on view at Lennon Weinberg Gallery, New York through August 19, 2011.
