A painter known for her vibrant, insistent, enigmatic paintings and works on paper, Charline von Heyl demonstrates that abstraction is intensely relevant in contemporary art. In addition to her large paintings, the exhibition will present von Heyl’s collage-based works on paper. Largely black and white, they combine woodcut, silkscreen, and lithography, and are defined by a wild overflow of energy. They are sometimes more conventionally legible than the paintings, their source images—whether Magritte drawings, found photographs, or comic books—less transformed.
