these paintings are great. My favorite was the Corner Bistro painting.

These ARE great. I wish I could see them in person-- especially for the acrlyic-on-aluminum texture-- but Paris is a bit far, so I contented myself with his website.

For once it it is nice to have something so spatial and complex. So many little pieces fit into each other to make the compostion, makes me wonder what his process is.

This one isn't my favourite. I was won over by the intimacy and more vibrant palette of his kitchen series. But this one does have something relaxing about it.

Am I reaching when I see a bit of Diebenkorn?

not a reach

Does the subway look like that in Paris? I wish I had a glass brick wall.

is this on paper? feels ephemeral somehow.

Cross said...

Gives off a very nice 'calm'. Bet it's great in person. I like the grid!

dubz said...

cross likes grid.

makes me wanna rave.

zipthwung said...

i like graph paper. And I like grids. Jennifer bartlett was doing them right?

I like this one

academic, but what the fuck.
I had a prfessor that painted in a simular vein, although less griddly.

The thing about this sort of obsessive shit is that it gives you something to do between ideas. Prcess of filling in the squares. Chick close has no ideas, and thats a good thing. Just the grid.

I'm into su doku right now, and its very satisfying. I might start saving mine.

Burgerder said...

nice, pretty, fun
It's like a whole new genre of colorful, interesting architecture painted in a blocky way. this guy, lisa sanditz, the autistic girl who does flourescent houses jessica park, the leipzig painter guy, chris something having a show right now on 26th st.

serena said...

Really gorgeous. It's hard to make green work for you like that. Reminds me of Rufino Tamayo's "Camino Clausado" but with its own thing going.

brian edmonds said...

Its more Matisse than Diebenkorn. Diebenkorn's are not as flat to me as Matisse's.

zipthwung said...

off the grid

you picked the best one from the website group because holymoley do I think that subway car one sucks..I think i did that same composition in a sketchpad in sophomore year of high school. I see why this one has its appeal though.
Ive been wondering, does anyone have a thought on why rainbow pallettes are so popular in the current zeitgeist? Jules Balincourt, Jeremy Blake, Cristoph Ruckhaberle, Derraindrop, barry mcgee, Chris Johansen, frank Haines, Peter Coffin, Avaf, this guy Perrone...it seems that particularly painters, but also sculptors and installation artists are all seduced by the new agey post utopian-idealness of it.....
by now I think its getting a little tired though

His work reminds me of Patrick Caulfield and Hockney from the 70's. The colors and the imagery has that feel.

JpegCritic said...

Leipzig in new york?
I read of the city being as the new Williamsburg...
Cheap rent and available in many colors.

It's good to see that influence travel in many ways.

Painter said...

Having problems up loading picture.
any suggestions for painters to post.

PS said...

Ooh! Dennis Hollingsworth. Yes.

flesheater99 said...

Christian what's his name @ Lehmann Maupin.

chicomacho said...

That Maupin show is fucked up, you sure that guy didn't just steal a bunch of Mattias Weischer's paintings and say they're his???
Its bad enough the imagery is the same, but to even paint the same way!

i guess i'm interested in why perrone went for the all out perspectival approach to depecting the subway?? nothing breaks the grid, which emulates the feeling of a metro.

i like the 'portal' aspect the light casts, and the danger in walking towards the light, as walking towards death in front a train. perhaps the flatness of the cartesian grid and its illusion of a sublime confrotation w/ death is supposed to reaffirm it's playfulness, in both the color and the inevitability of actual possibility.

in any event, i like that the 'art' off to both sides, which cannot be seen, leaving the main focus for contemplation at the newman-esqe zips, perpendicular to the horizontal black line where the depth of the tracks is supposed to begin.

Chico,
I just googled your Mattias guy and Holy Crap! I thought it was the same guy. I've liked his (Weischer;s)paintings for a while now but never knew his name and thought the Maupin show was the same guy. No doubt about the similarities. Don't know who came first but it's uncanny.

"A brighter day" @ James Cohan had some nice pieces & The Beautiful Game @ Roebling Hall (Chelsea)

Palooka said...

Hey Painter, can you please post the specs on this painting? size, medium, etc? thanks!

Cooky Blaha said...

i think the show at Andrew Kreps is worth posting....
