Dana Louise Kirkpatrick | ZUGZWANG reviewed by Artsy

December 21, 2014 - Stephen Dillon

In her second solo show at KM Fine Arts this winter Dana Louise Kirkpatrick presents over a dozen new drawings. “ZUGZWANG,” the exhibition’s title, refers to an interaction in a game, but especially chess, where a player is forced to make a move and their options are limited to undesirable choices—the results of the opponent’s moves. The reference can be understood as a personal commentary by the artist, referring to grapples with her work in the studio, playing against the canvas and being forced into certain moves by the logic of the art itself....


Eric Fischl Featured in Newcity

November 12, 2014 - Mark Pohlad

A bronze sculpture of cavorting figures in the gallery’s front window (“Ten Breaths: Congress of Wits, Study”) belies the artist’s reputation for edginess. By now Fischl (b. 1948) is an old master of contemporary art, famous for sexually provocative paintings like “Bad Boy,” 1981—the title of his recent memoir, incidentally—and for the controversy over “Tumbling Woman,” 2002, a commissioned sculpture for 9/11. This show features a dozen of the artist’s works from the last ten years. - See more at: http://art.newcity.com/2014/11/12/review-eric-fischlkm-fine-arts/#sthash.KtAew64y.dpuf

Following a Move to L.A., the World of Victor Matthews Gets a Bit Brighter

October 25, 2014 - Maxwell Williams - Artsy

For nearly 30 years, Brooklyn-born artist Victor Matthewshas filled his canvases with semi-abstract cityscapes and signifiers of the New York boroughs in which he made his career. A recent move to Los Angeles is evident in his most recent work, which is on view at KM Fine Arts in West Hollywood. For his first solo exhibition in L.A., “bright… brighter… brightest,” Matthews maintains the white hieroglyph-style geometric motif that has filled his work since the 1980s, but the California sky seems to have seeped into the background. Instead of white paint on unprimed taupe canvases, several of the works are painted over colorful gradient backdrops that echo the sunrise and sunset of Los Angeles.
