Stanley Whitney at Team Gallery

I caught the last chance to see Stanley Whitney's work at Team Gallery. The show, Einarsson, Rhodes and Whitney is down now which is too bad because I'd really like to go back and see it again. Whitney's works take time to view. I think you really need to stay in front of each one for a good, long while letting the work unfold and reveal itself. The image above is of a small piece. The photo gives you a hint of what you can get from Whitney's work. The photo below is of a much large painting and so you can't really see the details that make this work resonate. But you can still enjoy some of the color and structure of the painting.
