Indiana's archetypal stacked LOVE composition, with its bold serif lettering of VE stacked beneath the L and off-kilter O, is one of the most ubiquitous works of art of the 20th century. LOVE WALL (1966-2006) consists of four of Indiana's classic LOVE compositions arranged in mirrored orientations with the four Os joined at the center, constructing an impressive 12ft high, Cor-ten steel monument. LOVE WALL is a superlative example of Indiana's practice.
Paul Kasmin Gallery's forthcoming exhibition of new paintings by Judith Bernstein celebrates one of the gallery's newest on a renowned roster of artists. The exhibition, entitled Money Shot, will be on view from January 18 to March 3, 2018 at 293 Tenth Avenue and features seven new large-scale paintings that emphatically continue the artist's incendiary political critique of the current Trump administration. In the artist's words, "I am showing Trump for what he is: a fool, a monster, a jester, a sexist, a racist. Donald Trump is a con artist, using the White House as his own personal cash machine."
Since graduating from Yale in 1967, Judith Bernstein has developed a reputation as one of the most unwaveringly provocative artists of her generation. Steadfast in her cultural, political and social critique for over 50 years, Bernstein surged into art world prominence in the early 1970s with her monumental charcoal drawings of penis-screw hybrids.
