The Patch of Blue the Prisoner Calls the Sky

March 6 – April 18, 2020

Presenting thirteen new paintings by Schnabel, this series was created at the artist’s homes in Mexico and Montauk over the past year. The works are painted on tarps which were purchased from a food mart in Mexico while Schnabel was traveling. The weather-beaten fabrics provide a temporal point of departure for the paintings while they reveal a new way of looking at the world that blurs the line between representation and configuration.

Flares

March 6 – April 25, 2020

These paintings have rarely been seen together since their creation in the early 1990s. One of the Flares’ chief innovations resides in their colorful and translucent plexiglass strips. Wedged between the irregularly shaped panels of each work, these glossy bands activate a complex interplay among color, materials and form. To Noland, the Flares were “constructed pictures” with “separate component parts.” This assembling makes them related to both collage and sculpture, generating new possibilities.
