The Vogel

Amy Vogel at Larissa Goldston, Feb 29 - March 29, 2008. Amy Vogel works with both pencil and paint on special plaster surfaces which are smooth and inviting. She seems to work differently with the two mediums; her painting big general tones (lines which recall trees, or wires, or shadows), her drawing delicate specifics--a rope tied quietly to a post. There is emptiness in these paintings, and an unfinished quality which works.
