David Szafranski, installation view from a recent show in Montmartre, Paris, with Trish Nickell.
Click on image for larger view. Szafranki's allover, iterative ideas and feeling for pattern excel, and he also knows his way around the materiality of painting--how to use surface accidents proactively, etc. The work is confident but unpretentious, employing glue, spraypaint, and the flocking-like substance normally used to denote grass on architectural models (the dark parts of these).
what's happening with the canvases in the corner?
and the table with light in lower left?
I believe this is an art world phenomenon known as "makeshift space in Montmartre."
An offline commenter liked the lighting, analogizing it to a microscope selectively illuminating slides in a lab.
