Photo: Barbora Gerny Lee Lozano (born Lenore Knaster in 1930) created during the first half of the 1960s a body of work in a somewhat expressionistic style, later turning to minimalism and becoming one of the most prominent representatives of conceptual art in the United States during the 1960s. The exhibition at Hauser & Wirth includes a selection of paintings “from both her figurative and minimalist periods, alongside accompanying studies and drawings.” In a press release, Hauser & Wirth notes: “In the early figurative works on view, Lozano focused on the physicality of the human form and its associations with power, sexuality, and violence. She would eventually eliminate these recognizable shapes and objects from her paintings, choosing instead to use a deliberately restricted palette and range of geometric forms to explore the phenomena of energy, light, and color. These minimalist works, all of which have a verb as their title, were the first series she exhibited in New York at the Bianchini Gallery in 1966. Painting with three-inch housepainters’ brushes, the repeated parallel strokes were made while the pigment was still tacky, creating finely ridged, slightly reflective surfaces that are not only a striking challenge to painting’s basic elements but a profound exploration of matter itself.” Born in France but raised in the United States, Nicole Eisenman (b.1965) is known for her figurative paintings. The exhibition at Hauser & Wirth provides, according to the gallery, “a window into the distinct and powerful visual language Eisenman has developed over the course of the past three decades”, featuring “recent paintings and sculptures that speak to contemporary sociopolitical issues with openness and candid ambivalence.” #2022 #Hauser&Wirth #theartwolf
