At Sperone Westwater, pioneer painter Susan Rothenberg exhibits new works on canvas that depict fragmented compositions of the human body.  The thickly applied oil paintings are a departure from recent imagery influenced by the Season 3 artist’s physical surroundings in the New Mexico desert.

Though referencing the human form, Rothenberg’s favored minimal, expressionist mark-making here articulates “disembodied puppet legs, heads and arms to demonstrate how the representation of the figure can be transformed into a study of space and form.”

The exhibit opens February 19 and runs through April 11.
