Yves Zurstrassen’s work is always moving, going from lyrical abstraction to abstract expressionism and vice versa. The Belgian artist develops a singular creating process and uses a very particular technique that reflects the desire to go beyond temporality.
Jessica Dickinson’s work in her current exhibition, ARE: FOR + remainders, currently on view at James Fuentes, New York, focuses on the sensations of time, light, and matter within shifting philosophical, perceptual and psychological states. Working with oil paint and various tools on a plaster-like ground, various additive and subtractive actions of countering speeds and pressures are layered, from repetitive marking to aggressive chiseling. These procedures draw their direction from a specific period and poetic sequence of events, where abrupt change is intertwined within daily time.
