The Philip Slein Gallery is proud to present Subject Lines, an exhibition of abstract paintings by Alison HallDonald MoffettLiat Yossifor, and Robert Zungu. Four painters and methodological approaches — four lines of attack — that each yield unique and signature results in which boldness and calm seem to reside in equal parts.

Alison Hall’s paintings often recall Renaissance architecture, in this case the Arena Chapel in Padua, where layers of meticulously applied paint are ascribed to a plaster ground. Donald Moffett extrudes spindles of monochromatic oil paint to completely cover the picture plane and aggressively confront viewers with its charged psychological tactility.  Liat Yossifor coerces colorful oil paints into varying greys. Yossifor’s physical and performative engagement with her paintings record subconscious symbols in its expressionist surfaces. Using altered 19th century Japanese stencils as his point of departure, Robert Zungu employs laser toner ink and silver overlay to create constellations that both further the potential for Abstraction and mark time with new material phenomenologies.

Also In the Project Room: Dan Walsh, Paintings from the Whitney Biennial and Other Work.
