When he’s not hunting or fishing on edge of the Great American Plains, Todd Norsten spends “a lot of time making paintings that look like they were done in three seconds.” This quote neatly packages Norsten’s insubordinate attitude towards high culture, as well as his shameless devotion...

Matthew Satz: Strands

Exhibition Dates: March 2 - 23, 2013

Glenn Horowitz Bookseller is pleased to announce Strands, an installation by artist Matthew Satz, opening March 2, 2013 and on view through March 23rd. A reception for the artist will be held on March 2, 2013, from 6-8 pm.

For artist Matthew Satz, process and concept are intertwined and this is never more apparent than in his Strand paintings, a series of works that represent a painting in its most minimal form. According to Satz, “The strand isolates Jackson Pollock’s “drip” and challenges Barnett Newman’s “zip” and his approach lies in a reverence for traditional painting and its...

The Long Now, a phrase coined by Brian Eno, centers around the theory that “the precise moment you’re in grows out of the past and is a seed for the future. The longer your sense of Now, the more past and future it includes.” This concept is woven throughout Christopher Saunders’ works, both in process and meaning.

Lucy Winton:
Creatures

Exhibition Dates: November 5, 2012 - January 6, 2013

Glenn Horowitz Bookseller is pleased to announce both Billy Sullivan: Bird Drawings and Lucy Winton: Creatures, two simultaneous exhibitions opening on November 10, 2012.

A “romantic aesthetic” comes naturally to Lucy Winton, whose artwork references a spectrum of influences, from children’s book illustrations to Odilon Redon to contemporary Japanese artist Aya Takano. New York Times art critic Benjamin Genocchio called Winton’s work “empathetic, playful, and very strange, reminding me a little of the late, rather terrifying paintings of Francisco Goya.”

In Winton’s drawings, pastoral...

Eric Brown’s source material is typically based in the two-dimensional architectural plans of airport structures, runways, bridges and highways.

Woolf at the Beach!

Exhibition Dates: July 14th through September 3rd, 2012

Glenn Horowitz Bookseller, Inc. is pleased to announce the acquisition of a world class Virginia Woolf collection, for sale en bloc and on view in our East Hampton gallery throughout the summer.

Andy Warhol - Montauk Photos

Exhibition Dates: May 26th through June 26th, 2012

In his book America Warhol said of Montauk that it had the two things all the great American resort areas have, “physical active stuff like swimming, skiing, cycling, running and sex, and the feeling that, after you do all those things, there isn’t anything else to do so you might as well just relax.” Of course Warhol himself could never really stop working, even as he relaxed, and with his Polaroid camera, or a 35mm loaded with black and white film always at hand, the time he spent in Montauk was constantly recorded.

Nearly all of Warhol’s artworks were based in photography, and to a nearly...

DASH by David Matterhorn

Exhibition Dates: 14 September - 8 October 2011

This exhibition comprises works of the last four years, during which the artist visited cemeteries from Paris to Portland seeking out the most compelling dashes. After photographing Jackson Pollock's dash, he discovered how that image and those of other notable figures serve as a potent reminder of both the fleeting nature of life and our own personal power.

Expanding upon this notion, he embarked to create a series that focused not only on the dashes of artists, musicians, and luminaries, but also those of unknown individuals, creating a dramatic and revealing juxtaposition. However,...
