Currently up at Corbett Vs. Dempsey is Violet Fogs Azure Snot, a show of new paintings by Molly Zuckerman-Hartung. Still working through formal concerns in the language of abstract painting, she has deployed a new softer palette and less violent gestures. It seems like she has taken a more conservative approach to these new works. I was not taken by the show. With a name like Molly, you would think the work would operate like ecstasy but leaves me at a minor high. Lets see how she is on her way to the upcoming Whitney Biennial.
