ARTPIL / Prescription .038
Ballad of Normalcy

 

Nearly a million gather to march for their lives in Washington and around the world amid continued shootings in the U.S. and the unflinching NRA. Greece gets 6.7 billion euro bailout approval. Businesses are pulling out of Facebook following the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Bombs go off in Texas. Intrigue like a ballad of normalcy as a prelude to Easter. We lost an hour but gained an hour of sunshine. Welcome to the .038th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

 

Hughie O’Donoghue

Scorched Earth / Hughie O’Donoghue

Hughie O’Donoghue’s new paintings revisit and reimagine the imagery observed and invented by Van Gogh as he struggled to make a lucid vision manifest during his declining health. Through April 14, 2018 at Marlborough Fine Art.

 

Jaromír Funke

Jaromir Funke. Avant-Garde Photographer

Jaromír Funke repeatedly experimented with mirroring, transparencies and reflections – scrutinizing the perception of the viewer, some series no longer working with objects but solely with their shadows. A renewed interest in his work will be on view at Fotografie Forum Frankfurt through April 29, 2018.

 

Whitney McVeigh

Whitney McVeigh: Elegy to Nature

Whitney McVeigh’s intense curiosity has led to a diverse body of work which includes drawing, painting, installation, and video projects. This exhibition focuses specifically on the ink on paper works. Through April 20, 2018 at Eykyn Maclean Gallery, New York.

 

RaMell Ross / Hale County This Morning, This Evening

New Directors / New Films 2018

Opens tomorrow March 28 and runs through April 8, 2018 at Walter Reade Theater Film Society Lincoln Center & The Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters at MoMA.

 

Roland Quetsch

Roland Quetsch Paintings

Over the last few years, Roland Quetsch’s work has evolved toward the third dimension, building up the colors before being freely fragmented and assembled to give shape to very physical works. At Ceysson & Bénétière, Saint-Etienne through April 21, 2018.

 

Sarah Jones

Sarah Jones / Anton Kern Gallery

The cinematic lighting technique of ‘day for night’ merges the everyday with the space of dream. It offers a metamorphosis, a transition. Cascade. It implies being in between states, in suspension. Sarah Jones’s works on view through April 7, 2018 at Anton Kern Gallery.
