James Kalm is pleased to bring viewers a glancing walkthrough of "A Unified Theory" the latest series of paintings by Joe Zucker. Having emerged during the Bad Painting/New Image phase of contemporary art, Zucker has always challenged the normative constraints of the medium. Whether it was his iconic "cotton ball" paintings or his "box" pieces, his manipulation of the pigment, its material nature and the idea of what an image is, have informed the process. "A Unified Theory" presents two themes, the sailboat and the Romanesque atrium. Both series are painted on gypsum (sheetrock) that has been peeled, scoured with tiny grids, and painstakingly painted drop by drop with watercolor. An in-depth interview conducted by Phong Bui is available at the Brooklyn Rail's web site.
