Yaniv writes that “the three painters featured in the current show share a deep love of color, gesture, and an expressionistic gusto, resulting in unabashedly painterly canvases and works on paper… [Bienvenu] conveys the angst and bliss of our cyber-age, one in which the ideas of privacy, exposure, and pornography are increasingly blurred… Levy’s paintings escape a clear definition of subject matter or mood, so they remain oddly enigmatic yet deeply personal. She manages to translate such tensions into a cohesive painterly form without concealing how this form came to be, leaving on the surface traces of the match… each of Katherine Bradford’s small-scale canvases embraces a full universe. Mostly comprised of abstracted boats or occasional figures, Bradford’s canvases are both lush and reductive. Executed with brilliant color sensibility and grouped in a row, they activate the narrow corridor at Valentine with their luminous presence.”
