John Yau Discusses Similarities Between Works by Thomas Nozkowski and Philip Guston

Philip-Guston-Untitled80John Yau discusses the parallels between a painting made last year by Thomas Nozkowski and one by Philip Guston from thirty-two years earlier. Along with their formal similarities, both paintings “reveal themselves slowly,” inspiring a pace of seeing that is “synonymous with – at least in this viewer’s mind – the act of waking up, as shapes and forms slowly become crystalline.”
