Featured work on Exhibition A
Somewhere in the ghost world between Amy Sillman and Gerhard Richter lies the artistic acumen of Paul Behnke, whose solo show Like Giants opens this week in Philadelphia. During a MoMA/PS1 studio visit he described his process as a “slapdash approach punctuated by long spells of looking” and cites British abstractionists John Hoyland, Patrick Heron and Albert Irvin as influences. New Yorkers may recognize Paul’s paintings from the Brucennial 2012 on Bleecker Street this past April. His latest exhibition at The Rosenfeld Gallery will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog featuring an essay by poet/critic John Yau.
