NEW YORK, NY.- An exhibition of new abstract works by New York painter John Zinsser is on view at Graham Gallery through January 4th, 2011. Zinsser’s current exhibition follows his installation of drawings in the main gallery last season, Art Dealer Archipelagoes, which charted the history of New York’s post-war gallery development through a series of “maps.” These new works on canvas again source that history, but through strictly formalist and quotational terms. As Zinsser describes, “Early attempts, with my own hand- formulated hyper-physical paint, made the individual brushstrokes start to look more like ‘Ryman-on-steroids.’ Not only is impasto passage exaggerated, and made specific – color is much more chromatic, as well.” The two-color works play with conventions from Abstract Expressionism, Pop and Monochrome painting traditions.
