ABOUT ARTIST

Daniel Zeller’s obsessively layered paintings and drawings exploit the visual and compositional potentials of texture and line. Using only graphite or ink and acrylic paint on paper, Zeller is grounded in traditional media, but his insistence on a limited range of materials encourages him to push their compositional limits.

ABOUT GALLERY

Michel Soskine Inc. was founded in 1984 in New York and in 2005 expanded opening a new gallery space in Madrid, Spain. The gallery specializes in 20th and 21st century art.

ABOUT ARTIST

Julie Mehretu’s work is about layers: the physical layering of images, marks, and mediums, and the figurative layering of time, space, place, and history. Working in a large scale, Mehretu draws on the 21st-century city for inspiration, transferring its energy into her gestural sweeps of paint and built-up marks in ink and pencil—often transposed from projections—and condensing seemingly infinite urban narratives, architectural views, and street plans into single unified compositions.

ABOUT GALLERY

Marlborough Gallery was founded in London in 1946 and is widely recognized as one of the world's leading modern and contemporary art dealers.

ABOUT ARTIST

Donald Sultan’s large-scale still life paintings are filled with rich iconography—provocative objects, like bulbous fruits, set against a tar-black background. Although primarily classified as a still lifes, Sultan maintains that his works (despite their representational objects—flowers, lemons, eggs, buttons) are first and foremost abstract.
