Jonathan Lasker Review in ARTnews

ARTnews reviewed Jonathan Lasker's current exhibition of recent work at Cheim & Read, calling it a "happy mix of contradictions." The exhibition includes a series of black and white drawings and new paintings, and is accompanied by a catalogue with an essay by Raphael Rubinstein. As Lasker describes, the paintings in the exhibition are meant to “make the viewer see him or herself in the act of viewing,” drawing attention to “how we construct a picture in our mind.”

In the review, Alexa Lawrence writes, "The contradictions in Lasker’s panels draw attention to the act of looking, the projection of meaning, the urge to decipher, to anthropomorphize. In one painting, Signatory Powers (2015), the artist has scrawled his signature and the date in large, legible, Latin letters, in the upper right-hand corner, as though to bring everything back down to reality—a reminder of what is real, what is illusion, and what is art."

The exhibition will be on view at 547 W 25th Street through February 13.
