Valerie's selections

Deborah Zlotsky

Delmar, NY


I love Deborah’s use of color and form to make these quirky modernist abstractions. The surface of her paintings that look splattered, aged and reworked is an interesting contrast to the more contemporary humorous shapes.


Vera Iliatova

Brooklyn, NY


I love how psychological Vera’s paintings are—they are beautifully painted and haunting. The figures seem captured in a secret narrative within the wooded fringes of the city.


Rosemarie Fiore

New York, NY


I love how Rosemarie draws with Fireworks—she controls what she can and leaves the rest to the explosions. Now that is action painting!


Jane South

New York, NY


I love the intricate shapes and architectural forms that Jane constructs out of paper and pen. They are fantastic to see in person so you can really explore the detail.


Tom Sachs

New York, NY


I love Tom’s use of materials, concept and of course his craft. And I especially love his humor.
