Deborah Zlotsky (Associate Professor, Experimental and Foundation Studies) has a new solo exhibition current on show at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts (529 W. 20th St, New York). Zlotsky’s new exhibition, BTWfeatures a new series of abstract paintings inspired by a chance encounter with a striped bed sheet from the 1970s. The exhibition is on display now and runs through to 17th June 2017.

“I’m interested in how responsive actions eventually reveal structures and how a cycle of accumulation, rupture, and shift opens up a new syntax,” Zlotsky says. That language consists of flat areas of varying colors and sizes; the interruptions of paint drips, stains and abrasions; moments where the stripes transmute into volumetric planes and forms; and the addition of trompe l’oeil supports and prosthetics to prop up or balance the whole. The paintings materialize out of a friction between intention and coincidence, much like the daily processing and deciphering required to be in the world.
