One Man Show at Gary Tatintsian Gallery

From the gallery website:

Lee Ufan personal show at Gary Tatintsian Gallery includes artist's Relatum-silence stone installations, his recent water-colour works and the Dialogue paintings. In his Dialogue series artist creates a site-specific works placing a single, broad, viscous stroke of paint on canvas, setting up a rhythm that exposes and enlivens the emptiness of the space, creating what Lee calls “an open site of power in which things and space do vividly interact.” Limiting his brush strokes to one, two, or three squarelike marks on the pristine white canvas, artist uses grey to express “a vague, ephemeral and uncertain world,” making the tactile marks vibrate, fading in and out of the margins of vision.
