New York Painting

New York City has served as the inspiration to some of the most spectacular moments in painting. With a storied history in the arts, the city stormed the international art world in the 1950s with Jackson Pollack and the New York School of abstract expressionism. In the 1960s, Andy Warhol’s Factory brought pop art to worldwide attention. And an equally seismic shift is underway with a new generation of promising contemporary painters.

New York Painting presents eleven of the most cutting-edge painters associated with the city’s vibrant art scene. What characterizes the current generation of artists is a plurality of styles and forms that range from the wild post-pop paintings of Eddie Martinez, to the experimental works of Matt Connors to the neo-conceptual approaches Antek Walczac and Ned Vena. Without prioritizing any particular artist or style, the book documents the current rich variety of the medium of painting, which has risen in the past few decades beyond ideological battles to play an important role once again in the city’s contemporary art scene. With one hundred full-color illustrations, the book also includes works by Joe Bradley, Elizabeth Cooper, Jeff Elrod, Amy Feldman, Ross Iannatti, Ruth Root, and Ryan Sullivan.
