Rated Ex: Ab Ex in New York

Focusing on Miami for a month in December meant that much of what I saw in New York during that time remains in my digital files. For instance, I twice visited Abstract Expressionist New York at MoMA (up through April 25) and slipped into a beautiful Lee Krasner show at Robert Miller at the very beginning and very end of its run. I'd like to write more about what I saw, but now I'm getting ready for a solo in April in Atlanta. So except for Marketing Mondays, it's going to be more show than tell for the next couple of months.  Here's a little taste of what I saw, with details:

Love these works by Krasner - she allways seems to get overlooked as people want to see Pollock's work

Lee Krasner's work is unfortunately underrated.

Very bold striking patterns of abstract painting. I like the resemblance to some of Pollock's work, but with a bolder presence I believe. Many of the other works also administer their own influential style of beauty. Great set.
