Three drawings by Hedda Sterne are now on view as part of Van Doren Waxter's exhibition Go Figure, January 11 – February 18, 2017.
From the gallery:
Van Doren Waxter is pleased to present Go Figure, a group exhibition that explores the intersection of select historical and contemporary artists through the vernacular of figurative painting. Spanning a period of over 70 years (1944-2016), this cross-generational survey considers the timeless tradition of figuration as a through line connecting past to present. The included artists employ varying media and pictorial strategies to produce imagistic effects often blurring the lines of representation to create dramatic scenes of unreality. Go Figure will include painting, sculpture, works on paper and assemblage from James Brooks, Joseph Cornell, Richard Diebenkorn, Philip Guston, Ed Paschke, Hedda Sterne as well as contemporary artists Kristin Baker, Michael Berryhill, Jeronimo Elespe, Volker Hüller, and Sarah Peters.
