This event has ended.

Paul Kasmin Gallery announces New Paintings, an exhibition of recent paintings and works on paper by Caio Fonseca. This is the artist’s sixth solo show with the gallery.

Caio Fonseca, who has previously achieved his compositional energy through the interaction of multiple forms, has now moved in a more simplified direction. The central shapes in these new canvases are conceived and constructed in such a way as to achieve a lively interaction between a positive form and negative space.

The invention of this principle construct is, to a degree, informed by the artist’s recent study of classical music composition—an underlying influence throughout his oeuvre. Despite their seemingly graphic simplicity, every inch of the surface is enlivened with minute details, the tether and pull of fine lines that add a degree of animation to the monochrome picture plane.
