500 Best Galleries Worldwide

Goya Contemporary was selected as one of the 500 Best Galleries Worldwide by Modern Painters/Blouin Artinfo. Thank you for your support!

The New York-based American artist David Shapirois an internationally celebrated non-objective painter whose signature style of partitioned compositions creates boundless platforms for meditative awareness and contemplative tranquility through a complex union of color, texture, light, and form.

Betty Cooke is a seminal figure in American Modernist studio jewelry. Born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1924, she has been designing and creating one-of-a-kind works and multiples since the 1940s, and continues to do so today. Cooke’s timeless forms and distinctive visual vocabulary merging architectural simplicity, geometry, logical proportion, and aesthetic clarity have earned her a prominent place within the canon of design history among influential figures such as Alexander Calder, Harry Bertoia, Margaret De Patta, Paul Lobel, and Ed Wiener.

'Far from Near: Ann Hamilton at Goya Contemporary reviewed by Kerr Houston' Granted, she stands at a distance - and, granted, her clothes are virtually obscured by the dense thicket of flashlights and reflectors that hang improbably from her form, making her look like a decrepit cyborg.

Stefano) and the Berengo Centre for Contemporary Art and Glass (Murano), this year a third institution has joined: the Scuola Grande Confraternita di San Teodoro (San Marco).

Timothy App: The Aesthetics of Precision, Forty-Five Years of Painting
Presented by Goya Contemporary at the American University Museum, Katzen Arts Center Through May 26, 2013

Michael Sullivan of the Washington Post writes ..."it would be a mistake to dismiss App as having made the same painting over and over again, ... a few paintings, inspired by time he spent in Santa Fe, N.M., could almost be called colorful....deliberate restraint of his pictures both reins in and reveals a hidden turbulence that lies well below the surface and that complicates and enriches their tranquillity."

About the exhibition: A collection of paintings completed over a span of 45 years, this exhibition pays tribute to Timothy App's complex exploration of abstract painting, as well as his contribution to the larger art historical narrative.  App's signature style of geometric abstraction, with its assertive visual tensions, reveals a concise and thoughtful understanding of the nature of painting.  The exhibition brings together various aspects of the artist's evolution and growth, demonstrating his status as one of the region's most important living painters.
Exhibition curators: Amy Raehse & Jack Rasmussen
Catalogue Available: with Contributions by Richard Shiff, Lilly Wei, Jennifer Wallace and Julie Karabenick
