Best of 2017


Cornelia Schulz @ Patricia Sweetow

“If anyone understands the hugely plastic and seductive physicality of paint, it is Cornelia Schulz,” wrote Julia Couzens.  “Troweled slags of cadmium yellow, puckered splots of minty green, and regressive planks of flat black collide, slip, slide, splat, and skid into the chunky-luscious concoctions that constitute Schulz’s new paintings. Where Ellsworth Kelly opens up his shaped canvases like vast unfolding fans, Schulz cobbles together tiny odd-sized canvases into cranky grids where reasoned geometry pushes against seduction’s looping pull.”
