Just in Time: Josef Albers at the Morgan

posted on 15 Oct 2012 22:22 by Sara Spink

Anyone who has taken a painting class is likely familiar with the exercise of creating value studies, strips of tonal values ranging from dark to light. Having done so granted me an immediate familiarity with the preparatory studies comprising this insightful exhibition evidencing painter Josef Alber's creative process.

Rineke Dijkstra: A Retrospective

posted on 01 Aug 2012 17:07 by Sara Spink

I love observing people, and it's lucky for me that New York City is especially conducive and receptive to that practice. Whether watching families in Central Park or scrutinizing faces on the subway, one finds in this city an endless canvas of humanity. It is just this type of inspection Rineke Dijkstra invites in the retrospective body of work currently presented at the Guggenheim. Raising...
