STRANDS - ON VIEW in "Matthew Satz: Strands" at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller in East Hampton, NY:
“Matthew Satz: Strands” presents Satz's strands in multiple forms to reveal the ways each single Strand contributes to the creation of a series of By-product paintings. Strands are presented in their singular form as a By-product paintings, grouped in Bouquets, and in wall installations.
The exhibition as installation presents variations of the strands to provide a context in which to engage the viewer in each individual object, the relationships found between the objects, and the spatial concerns of installation art and sculpture. The show also allows an examination of the artist's ongoing investigation into making art that is actively painted versus passively painted and the process in which one artwork is utilized to make another.
For Satz, the Strand represents a painting in its most minimal form. “The strand isolates Jackson Pollock’s “drip” and challenges Barnett Newman’s “zip” and his approach lies in a reverence for traditional painting and its evolution," states Satz.
BASIC FACTS: “Matthew Satz: Strands” is on view through March 23 at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller, 87 Newtown Lane, East Hampton, NY 11937. www.glennhorowitz.com
