Galleries offer reasons to come in from cold Cuban cars, post-apartheid identity & film are hot prospects


Mark Sheinkman, Twelfth, 2010, oil, alkyd and graphite on linen, 96 x 67 in.
Sheinkman’s elegant black and white abstractions evoke notions of time, space and transition. Employing expressive lines that play with subtle variations in tone, these compositions reveal as much about process as they do about material. While striking in their visual immediacy from afar, Sheinkman’s works become more complex upon closer observation. As one discovers that no truly crisp lines exist, Sheinkman’s paintings become less graphic — luring us into a space defined by fine nuances and persistence.
