Canyon - Daisy - Eden

Over the last three decades, Los Angeles-based artist Mary Weatherford has developed a rich and diverse painting practice: from early target paintings in the 1990s based on operatic heroines, to expansive, gestural canvases overlaid with neon glass-tubing that brought attention to Weatherford’s practice in the 2010s. Mary Weatherford: Canyon—Daisy—Eden presents a survey of Weatherford’s career, drawing from several distinct bodies of work made between 1989–2017. As constant experiments with color, scale, and materials, these works reveal the continuity of Weatherford’s preoccupation with memory and experience, both personal and historical.

Carson’s geometric paintings, inspired by the land of big sky, mimic rolling hills and valleys.

On Math Bass: Got a Light?
On Math Bass: Got a Light?
by William J. Simmons for Artillery Mag

A strained, stretched, widening, loosened metaphor, one that gives lights and receives them, might be the best way to describe Math Bass’ work. Yet metaphor is an easy interpretational mode that relies too heavily on iconography. Morever, description logo-centrically implies that all that is felt can be written or painted, that you actually can describe what bottoming is like to someone who has yet to do it. A simile might be better. In this moment, it seems more capacious. Bass’ work is like a ride on the Long Island Rail Road, winding through a certain kind of world, in which crushed skulls and young love happen simultaneously and often unnoticed, where aspiration and reality meet, where the Piano Man’s jar is filled up with cock-like bread, where hearts are broken and lose their three-dimensionality, only to unflatten at the sight of beautiful arms at work on a floor.

Shot in 1967, Lyon’s photographs offer a more nuanced and human perspective of the destruction of the old lower Manhattan, one that is often paved over by history books.
