Sticking up a little for Ryman


Post by Mark Barry

Just back from icy New York. Saw Robert Ryman at Pace. Lots of paintings in the show. Lots o’ white. Some tedious, but after a little adjustment, several are quite beautiful (see Libby’s post for another view). The paint can be luscious. I like the play of the white off the under painting and the toying with the edges (image, “Section 2” 1996).
