(Excerpt from the full interview)
"There are so many artists I'm excited about — too many to list. However, I just fell in love with David Musgrave's graphite drawings at Luhring Augustine Gallery and Katie Bell's paintings and installation at Mixed Greens is amazing — she's one to watch! On my wish list would be a painting by Kadar Brock who's work I recently saw at Gallery Diet and I dream of living with one of David Altmejd's sculptures."

Color Wheel: Katie Bell

by WHITNEY KIMBALL on MARCH 12, 2014 · 0 C
Color Wheel is a series in which we identify a trending color in art, and post a daily image that illustrates its popularity. This week’s color is brown.
Some benign cheerleading here: Katie Bell’s been in group shows all over Brooklyn for the past few years, so it’s nice to see her get her first New York solo show at Mixed Greens. The show might be one more notch in Mixed Greens’ recent hipness increase, with “Hooray for Hollywood” and a solo show of work by Conor Backman. The concurrent group show “Implicit Horizon” (Jarrod Beck, Alex Ebstein, Richard Tuttle, Maria Walker, Letha Wilson, B. Wurtz) is also trending. The showcard comes on a brown background!
Bell has an ability to make tension and lightness out of even the most bulky materials, and we’ll probably see more of that in “Light Weight”. Bell considers her use of tension, like weak-strong and heavy-light, as a play in gendered dichotomies; Kate Gilmore fans should definitely see this one.
