“In [R.H.] Quaytman’s work, all glances are sidelong.” Steven Stern wrote for Frieze Magazine two years ago. He was describing the painter’s predilection for footnotes, or more specifically, her desire to move away from the painting as a singular object, of single-minded attention, to something a little more complex.
For this reason, since 2001, Quaytman has been organizing her work in Chapters. They are one passage, to be understood within a greater body of work.
Perhaps for this reason, the work may be best viewed within the context of the group show. Now’s the Time: Recent Acquisitions, at the Guggenheim provides that venue, so hearing Quaytman speak about her work and the show this Wednesday should be exciting. I recommend it.
