Art Sightings in New York, Part 2

I went to look at some galleries in west Chelsea, New York City, last Friday. It was my first visit to the area. So many galleries, and so many I didn't even get time to see! What caught my eye was mainly abstract art, apart from this first one, a giant multi-coloured print by Kiki Smith at Pace Prints:


Ross Bleckner, at Mary Boone (below). The photo shows the size of the painting, but not the subtlety of the marks revealed underneath each dot or hole. On the way out, I heard someone saying snarkily: "Oh, Ross Bleckner is only here because some hedge fund billionaire buys all his work:"


A show of recent prints by Terry Winters:


Dead White Guy alert: a great set of paintings by Raymond Hendler (1923-1998):


And some loosey-goosey geometry by Gary Stephan. I liked this green/black/grey one a lot:
