Caleb De Jong reviews the exhibition Susan Jane Walp: Recent Paintings at Tibor de Nagy Gallery, New York, on view through November 24, 2012.
De Jong writes: "Walp’s paintings evince the imperative to ‘get the right eyes’, how nature can only be truly viewed through long and deliberate trial. Her choice of still life painting is a reflection of that imperative. Her objects, mostly humble and a few, such as a bubble gum wrapper and a barcode, point to the contemporary world. Otherwise Walp’s still life art is one of reflection and nuance."
