The Strands of Satz
Glenn Horowitz Bookseller will display works by Matthew Satz, an East Hampton-based artist, beginning Saturday with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m.
“Matthew Satz: Strands” will focus on a series displaying the artist’s commitment to process and concept. According to the artist, he was inspired by both Jackson Pollock’s drip and Barnett Newman’s zip in making these minimal works, which reference both painting and sculpture.
When artistic talent is just a footnote in someone’s life, strange and extraordinary things can happen. When someone’s life is already legendary, the effect can be exponential.
With so many pre-eminent American artists associated with the East End, it is not surprising that the Whitney Museum of American Art would feature many of them in the inaugural exhibition for its new home in New York City’s meatpacking district opening to the public on Friday.
