Excellent piece about contemporary painter Louise Belcourt by John Yau at +Hyperallergic 
Despite the hue and cry about zombie formalism, there is a lot of very good painting going on these days.

And here is John Yau's initial piece on #artist  Michael Mazur 
I have been thinking about the difficulty of characterizing Michael Mazur in part because, while he became highly celebrated as a printmaker, his paintings have never received nearly the same atten...

An old and dear friend, Lee Van Laer, is the poetry editor at Parabola Magazine. He shared his thoughts about my work there, for which I'm very grateful. 

http://www.parabolapoetry.com/WaltPascoe.html
From the Editor: One of the odd prerogatives of an editor is that they get to say what is and what isn't within the realm of the art they edit. Sometimes, they even get to cheat. Walt's not a poet, but he might as well be. For the 35 years I have known him, Walt has relentlessly pursued an inner ...

Introduction
Walt Pascoe is a Montreal based artist who was born in the U.S. After receiving a BFA from St.Lawrence University in 1980, he moved to New York City and embarked on a life-long career in the fine and decorative arts. While cultivating the high level of technical mastery required to design and fabricate high-end commission based furniture for the past 30 years, he has continued to pursue an equally rigorous line of inquiry grounded in 20th century abstract expressionist art. Saw blades and their tooth patterns figure prominently in recent work, as do the profiles of chairs he’s built, evoking a layered, poetic bridge between form and content. The net effect is an impression of deep stability at the heart of intense movement. In the introduction to her interview with Walt, the writer and poet Maureen Doallas noted: 
“His artwork is intense and visceral, presenting an unusual paradox of violence and tenderness that envelopes the viewer. You cannot look just once at these kinetic abstractions and be satisfied that you've taken in all that's being offered, nor can you look and not remark on the deeply intuitive sensibility at play.”
