Artist: R. H. Quaytman
Location: 4th Floor, Whitney Biennial 2010
A careful selection of paintings by R. H. Quaytman fill a small room on the fourth floor that is dominated by a bright, trapezoid-shaped window. The outline of that window is a recurring figure in some of the paintings, part of a layering of references that acknowledge the exhibition venue, the artistic and historical context of the artist’s work, and the optical condition of all visual art but especially of painting.
