A first-generation action painter, Raymond Hendler started his career as an Abstract Expressionist in Paris, as early as 1949.

JILL NATHANSON POURS SEDUCTIVE POLYMERS

March 16, 2016 - Jamie de Simone for MoCA Jacksonville

Nathanson constructs color fields of acrylic polymer gels. I immediately Googled images on my iPhone after my conversation. Interesting was my immediate reaction, but “interesting” is my “go-to” word, my word when I don't yet know how to describe an object, but think something deeper, richer is occurring. Nathanson's work was, and is, interesting, but I couldn't come to describe the “why” until I saw the paintings firsthand.

Charlotte Park's Paintings Wow in New York

March 7, 2016 - Jennifer Landes for East Hampton Star

With so much going on during Armory Week in Manhattan, you can be forgiven for not getting to the Charlotte Park survey on view at the Berry Campbell gallery in Chelsea, but it's really your loss.

Sure, the art fairs dotting the city as far north as the Park Avenue Armory and as far south as Tribeca had their moments. But just as the female artists of the past and present shined in those settings, Ms. Park's paintings from the years 1950 to 1985, work relatively unknown to the wider art market, demonstrate an artist at top form.

Overshadowed During her Lifetime, an Abstract Expressionist Gets her Due

February 29, 2016 - Bridget Gleeson for Artsy

In the Hamptons of the 1950s and ’60s, there were two significant pairs of artists working in Abstract Expressionism. The two couples were also friends. One set you know: Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner. The other you might not: James Brooks (1906–1992) and Charlotte Park (1918–2010).

Brooks and Park were both artists when they met in Washington, D.C., during World War II. They moved to New York together in 1945 and forged a fast friendship with Pollock and Krasner, renting studio space from them in the city and eventually following their lead to resettle on Long Island. “These artists were forging a new aesthetic,” Helen Harrison of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center has said, “and only they understood what they were doing, so there was this sense of camaraderie.”
