I am pleased to present the exhibition New Radicals featuring 14 Philadelphia connected painters chosen for their subtle, slow and pleasureful commitment to their practice: Rebekah Callaghan, Mariel Capanna, Alex Cohen, Evan Fugazzi, Claire Kincade, Bonnie Levinthal, Adam Lovitz, Dustin Metz, John Mitchell, Samantha Mitchell, Kaitlin Pomerantz, Liza Samuel, Bill Scott and Leigh Werrell. While the work varies in form and subject, an intimate relationship with mark, color and surface is consistent. These 14 demonstrate a loving restraint, a respect for the mystery that unfolds in process and a deference for the maker’s hand. In the face of current trends, this careful work feels radical. I look to these painters as an antidote, as proof that the greatest painting can still be deeply felt and personal. And I take great interest in the way this groundswell is happening here, two hours south of New York.
