New American Paintings #103 Sneak Peek

Within the next few weeks the Pacific Coast issue of New American Paintings, #103, will be received by subscribers and newsstands across the country. Juror, Monica Ramirez-Montagut, Senior Curator at the San Jose Museum of Art, carefully selected the artists you see below. In her essay, Monica notes, "The selection for New American Paintings makes evident the vitality and vibrancy of paintings, and  the impossibility of narrowing down the practice to one trend or style. Painting continues to be a sublime, visceral, fully fleshed, colorful, and witty facilitator of self-expression."

Social Practice: A Q&A with Laura Hudson

Laura Hudson (NAP #99) has been getting out of the studio. The Baltimore-based painter organizes participatory events, documents them on video, then culls her compositions from the nuanced moments hidden in the hours of footage. For her latest project Laura organized a sleepover at the Arlington Arts Center in suburban Washington, DC. The event was meant to be a sentimental throwback to the days of slumber parties -- the artist and 15 of her friends ate junk food, chatted, and played cards all night before nodding off into sleeping bags.

Greg Murr’s Political Wild Things

Greg Murr’s (NAP #101) dogs hunt and play in a world of human-made and human-valued accoutrements.  Strands of pearls, ladders, flowers, and ribbons weave playfully through the animals’ fantastical worlds, yet the pull of the paintings always remains the intensity of the animals and their very animal instinct.

Greg Murr | Capital, 2011, acrylic polymer, graphite on canvas, 63 x 67 inches.
