Don Voisine: "Veer"

2012: Year in Review
The Top Shows

Don Voisine @ Gregory Lind - There's a lot in Voisine's hard-edged, geometric paintings that link him to past masters from Malevich to McLaughlin. But what distinguished these works was theatricality, which is not a quality we normally associate with stuff coming out of Finish Fetish, Constructivism and Minimalism. Combining geometry, line and color to create a proscenium-like effect, Voisine's paintings pull us into black voids the way Sugimoto's time-lapse shots of empty theaters draw us toward the light, like moths to a flame. The pictures are spare, but the experience they afford is transporting.
