What’s the Frequency, Stanley?
The artist wins the day with his use of color, rich and vibrant, and his mastery of manipulating paint
Stanley Casselman rose to notoriety by responding to a challenge by Jerry Saltz, the provocative New York magazine art critic, but he remains a sought-after painter through his own process and creativity. His latest work is now on view at the Mark Borghi Fine Art gallery in Bridgehampton.
The challenge he answered and fulfilled was to make a work that looked like a Gerhard Richter painting. For Mr. Casselman, having worked with a squeegee himself, Mr. Richter’s style was almost second nature. In the end he made quite a few as part of the experiment, which evolved into a series or two. They ultimately achieved the effect of homage, but with a personal twist.
Johnston and Nower: Inside the Artist’s Garage is a dialogue between artists. One, Johnston, exploring the process and fusion of classic automobile finishes through artistic forms, while the other, Nower, captures the passion and depth of the creative process in photographs. A hybrid of artist studio and classic racecar garage, Johnston’s East Hampton studio is a testament to his ceremonious approach—blending the line between classic automobile forms, colors, materials and fine art—and Nower’s work feeds off that energy.
New York dealer Mark Borghi of Mark Borghi Fine Art, a six-time exhibitor at Art Miami, told artnet News, “You have to exhibit in Miami in December. We start six months before,” in terms of curating the works for the booth. This year, the gallery mounted a show focused on Minimalism and monochromes.
Borghi summed up the eclectic blue chip display: “Silver Jackie, Gold Jackie, white paintings from Richard Prince, we’ve done post-war abstraction, the influence of Hans Hoffmann on people like Joan Mitchell and Frank Stella.”
