Wayne Thiebaud Draftsman Review

Wayne Thiebaud Draftsman Review

by David Ambrose

June 30, 2018

"It is the first all encompassing museum retrospective of his drawings that date back to his days as a cartoonist, commercial draftsman and art director. Thiebaud’s unique brand of graphic gymnastics takes place in the over eighty works in this exhibition curated by Isabelle Dervaux, Acquavella Curator of Modern and Contemporary Drawings at the Morgan Library. While Thiebaud has been known primarily as a realist painter; the show postures to set the record straight by presenting a compelling argument for drawing as the backbone of his painting practice."

Surprises from Wayne Thiebaud, Master Draftsman

Surprises from Wayne Thiebaud, Master Draftsman

by John Yau

June 17, 2018

"I was surprised to learn that the exhibition Wayne Thiebaud, Draftsmanat The Morgan Library & Museum (May 18 – September 23, 2018), curated by Isabelle Delvaux, is the first time an institution has examined the full range of this well-known artist’s works on paper — from early cartoons dating from the 1940s to quickly done notebook sketches to his sophisticated use of graphite, watercolor, pastel, and charcoal. After all, Thiebaud is just a few months shy of his ninety-eighth birthday and has been showing regularly since 1962."

Bo Bartlett in Arts and Antiques Magazine

Bo Bartlett in Arts and Antiques Magazine

by John Dorfman

May 29, 2018


"Bo Bartlett is an American realist painter, rooted in figurative traditions from his own country—Wyeth, Rockwell, Eakins, Homer—and from Europe, going back to the Renaissance. Unlike many contemporary artists who work in a realist mode, he doesn’t trade in postmodern irony, and his is not an appropriation art. Bartlett uses classical visual language to tell stories. Some are personal and some are public, or at least have a public aspect."

The Pleasurable Melancholy of Wayne Thiebaud's Landscapes

The Pleasurable Melancholy of Wayne Thiebaud's Landscapes

by Sally Grant

November 14, 2017

 

"At Allan Stone Projects, the best of the artist’s landscapes contain similarly expressive whorls and streaks of color, which now capture the beauty and drama of the surrounding world. These virtuosic brushstrokes can be considered both as representational markings and as pure strokes of pigment. In either case, they entice. They also unsettle."

On the Road with Wayne Thiebaud

On the Road with Wayne Thiebaud

by John Yau

November 5, 2017

 

"As well known as Thiebaud is for his paintings of food and lunch counters, what gets overlooked is his ability to merge the fanciful with the formal. For years he has invented landscapes that speak to everyday turbulence as well as idyllic calm. His views of dizzying heights and steep inclines get at something basic in our nature, a sense that whatever we are standing on — no matter how solid — can slide without notice into the ocean, collapse, or crumble."

Wayne Thiebaud Retrospective at White Cube, London

Wayne Thiebaud Retrospective at White Cube, London

June 9, 2017

"It would be hard to think of an American painter more stinted over here than the Californian master Wayne Thiebaud, poet of the milkshake, ice-cream cone and cherried sundae, of the still life with pie and damn fine cup of coffee. Thiebaud, born in 1920, has been making these radiant paintings for almost seven decades. But in this century at least, Britain has never enjoyed a full-scale retrospective of his luscious Americana, and Tate Modern has no more than a couple of monochrome cakes. So White Cube’s present show is a vital and glorious opportunity."

John Graham on Hyperallergic

John Graham on Hyperallergic

by Thomas Micchelli

June 3, 2017

"The exhibition John Graham: Maverick Modernist at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, Long Island, is a unique opportunity to explore the work of an artist who has hovered on the margins of the Modernist narrative for more than a half-century, when he isn’t forgotten altogether ... Maverick Modernist takes a deep dive into Graham’s background as an artist, a career he began in earnest when, at the age of 35, he enrolled in the class of the Ashcan School painter John Sloan at the Art Students League in New York City."

John Graham in Arts and Antiques Magazine

John Graham in Arts and Antiques Magazine

by John Dorfman

April 28, 2017

 

"Graham is going to be getting renewed attention, because the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, N.Y., is mounting a comprehensive retrospective of his career, accompanied by a catalogue which gives his full biography (or at least as full as is currently possible, given Graham’s tendency to self-mythologize and alter details of his past) and a critical reassessment of his achievements. “John Graham: Maverick Modernist,” which opened on May 7 and runs through July 30, features 66 paintings loaned from museums as well as many private collections, which together make it possible to understand this artist’s aesthetic trajectory and level of skill."

Better Late Than Never by John Yau

October 18, 2016

"In the more than fifty years since Jack Whitten’s work was first included in a four-person show at Allan Stone in 1965, the year after he graduated from Cooper Union, he has proven impossible to characterize. While this is very much to Whitten’s credit, I also think that the radical stylistic and material transformations his work has undergone partly contributed to why — for many decades — he remained an underappreciated artist."

James Havard in Arts and Antiques Magazine

September, 2016

"In a 50-year career, James Havard has painted in many styles, from realism to trompe l’oeil “abstract illusionism” to multimedia collage to his current mode, which recalls art brut. But no matter how different they may be, all these styles are unmistakably Havard, speaking eloquently in their different voices of one relentlessly creative spirit. "

Wayne Thiebaud Review on Artforum

Wayne Thiebaud Review on Artforum

May 20, 2016

"Sunglasses, ice-cream cones, nudes, bolt cutters, and, of course, layer cakes are just a few of our favorite things depicted in this airy, career-spanning sampling of Wayne Thiebaud’s work. The sophisticated whimsy of the painter’s realism is reflected not just in his choice of charming subjects but also in his meticulous renderings of them. Via his multicolored outlining technique, which the artist refers to as “halation,” the works are imbued with a subtle Kodachrome radiance. And up close, one finds a fanciful mini-sunset at the edge of each object."

by John Yau

January 30, 2016

 

"Solitude, seclusion, invisibility, and the preservation of threatened and extinct creatures are just some of the themes that Beck returned to throughout the 1970s and ’80s. The wee scale of some of his dioramas requires that one person look at it at a time, like Marcel Duchamp’s “Étant donnés” (1946–66). The difference is that Duchamp’s installation requires the viewer to look through a peephole in a massive wooden door, transforming him or her into a voyeur, while Beck’s almost miniature scale make the viewer feel like the sole, colossal witness to something that he or she can do nothing about. Feeling cut off, vulnerable and perplexed, the viewer begins to mirror what he or she witnesses."

"25 Artists Confront Humankind's Problems in a Summer Show at Allan Stone Projects" by Karen Kedmey

June 30, 2015

It can be hard to find humor in pressing issues that face humankind. A small sampling of these: our degradation of the environment; daily murders worldwide; and the consumerist ethos that seems to drive modern life. Leave it to artists to call out the irony of our collective state of affairs, and to do so with spirit and, yes, even humor. This summer, Allan Stone Projects presents an array of work by artists who tackle our ills—some of whom may leave you suppressing a grin.

"Five Artists Serve Up Donuts, Pie, and Other Confections in Richly Colored Paintings" by Haniya Rae

January 7, 2015

Famous for his lush renderings of pastries, Wayne Thiebaud once exclaimed: “Cakes, they are glorious, they are like toys.” This comparison to toys, which can also be found among his oeuvre, reflects the pleasure Thiebaud had found in playing with these culinary treats—in paintings, prints, and drawings. In his zeal to paint cakes, pies, candies, and various other treats, Thiebaud emulated frosting (and other sugary substances) in thick, slick brushstrokes, effectively translating his rich subjects to two-dimensional, purely visual entities. As a result, the artist established a legacy of conjuring tasty treats, and has inspired countless other artists to follow his lead.

Art in America: Robert Baribeau 1980-NOW, Reviewed by David Ebony

This recent show of Robert Baribeau's colorful, richly textured abstract compositions at first appeared as an amalgam of postwar painting styles. At points in his career, Baribeau, born in Aberdeen, Wash., in 1949, and now based in upstate New York, has employed elements of Ab Ex, Pop, Color Field and Neo-Expressionism. However, the 24 large and medium-size canvases and oil-on-paper works in this lively, three-decade survey avoid a feeling of pastiche, and the allusions merge into a unique aesthetic.

"For over thirty years, Robert Baribeau has refined a style of abstract expressionist painting that takes the natural world as its subject, from tumultuous, overwhelming landscapes to the stillness of a single flower. When I ask if nature and lanscape are always the subjects of his paintings, Baribeau responds with an emphatic “always.” The ongoing evolution of his work is on view in a retrospective show opening today at Allan Stone Gallery, Robert Baribeau: 1980-NOW."

Dissatisfied with photorealism’s linear, predictable process, Hickam started working intuitively, breaking his paintings down into abstraction. He was, in his own words, letting “breath” into the work, looking for the kind of living, psychological complexity that he found in paintings from Rembrandt to Picasso."

Through irreverent, lumpy clay pieces, certainly more amusing than aesthetically pleasing, Arneson injects wry humor into the medium: A series of anthropomorphic jars and trophies have handles like spindly tentacles extending their sinister grasp; a cleat-shaped kettle is engraved with its title, Spiked Tea, 1969; the tip of a finger puzzingly pokes through one of the many clay bricks." (p. 98)

Robert Arneson: Playing Dirty Review

Robert Arneson: Playing Dirty Review

"Aptly titled 'Playing Dirty,' this bawdy exhibition of the late Robert Arneson’s small early works provided ample evidence of the earthy, sardonic humor that this pioneering Bay Area Funk artist injected into his stoneware vessels. Infusing the raw irregularity of traditional Japanese tea-ceremony utensils with the zany smut of MAD magazine, Arneson reveled in jokes rhyming bodily openings with spigots designed for transferring liquids from one container to another, often using the unexpected surfaces of glazing and firing to mirror the physical functions evoked. The blatantly sexual Untitled Ceramic (with Red Orifice), 1964, for example, resembles a squatting frog and is topped with a vaginal slit adorned with a splotchy, turquoise-flecked maroon glaze.

The title of this show couldn't be more apt. The boxlike constructions here by various artists—most created in previous decades and all selected from the late Allan Stone's private holdings—are like intensely personal time capsules, filled with confessions, dreams, and nostalgia.
