Women in Video Glitch Paintings

06.28.11 Marina Galperina

Swiss artist Andy Denzler’s voyeuristic paintings look like home movie stills, crinkled by VHS tracking static. Yes, video tapes. Remember those? His most recent body of work leans away from his signature monochrome seaside abstractions and features lots of ladies. Less anonymous silhouettes. More bangs and bras. “Surface,” Andy Denzler, May 18 – Jul 2, Claire Oliver Gallery, NYC
