Not exactly breaking news (the show closes tomorrow), but Scott Noel‘s exhibiting new work right now at Gross McCleaf in Philly. I’m intrigued by this body of work. I usually think of him as having a kind of perceptual/observational gravitas thing in relation to the motif. With that as the precedent, some of these new paintings are borderline whimsical. (New paintings are at the top of the page on the link).
