ARTPIL / Prescription .098
sunlight between two pines

 

Over my head, I see the bronze butterfly,
Asleep on the black trunk,
Blowing like a leaf in green shadow.
Down the ravine behind the empty house,
The cowbells follow one another
Into the distances of the afternoon.
To my right,
In a field of sunlight between two pines,
The droppings of last year’s horses
Blaze up into golden stones.
I lean back, as the evening darkens and comes on.
A chicken hawk floats over, looking for home.
I have wasted my life.

The second heat wave of the summer subsides in Europe. Suspected terrorist attack at a funeral in Nigeria kills at least 65 people. Newly elected Boris Johnson in the UK triples down for Brexit even with the threat of no-deal. In the U.S., the House of Representatives and the President exchange blows around race as the country goes about its way with another mass shooting in California. Puerto Rico gears up to replace Ricardo Rossello stepping down after scandals as the Caribbean faces further tropical climate disturbances. Welcome to the .098th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

 

Lubaina Himid

Lubaina Himid: Work From Underneath

With larger historical narratives often as a driving force, Lubaina Himid’s works critique the consequences of colonialism and question the invisibility of people of color in the arts and the media. Through October 6, 2019 at New Museum, New York.

 

Akos Ezer

Akos Ezer / Abstract Hungary

With these figures seemingly distorted by strange movements Akos Ezer powerfully speaks of the foundering, the clumsiness, and the fallibility of the individual and of society as a whole. At Künstlerhaus Halle für Kunst & Medien through September 5, 2019.

 

Eric Fischl

Eric Fischl

Eric Fischl produces images of American society as seen through the lens of middle and upper class malaise, where figures routinely share space on his canvases, trapped in the midst of strained exchanges. On view through August 30 2019 at Sprüth Magers, Los Angeles.

 

Hellen van Meene

The Bird in Borrowed Feathers

Echoing traditional Dutch paintings, Hellen van Meene’s photography find glimpses into intimate inner worlds and bring their fragility to light in ways that are sometimes surreal and unsettling. At James Freeman Gallery through August 3, 2019.

 

Graham Little

Graham Little

We arrive in the midst of things, pick up clues, try and put something together. That something exists in the eternal present of the painting, a present that unravels in time. –Martin Herbert. Graham Little, just closed (July 27, 2019) at Alison Jacques Gallery, London.

 

Edoardo Caimi

B.L.I.S.S.
