"i find the transcendent subtlety and quietude of blaise rosenthal’s intricate compositions in charcoal and acrylic on canvas immediately captivating. his softly wavering, almost flickering, striations evoke the ascetic quality of agnes martin’s grid paintings of the 1960s and ’70s, while his manner of binding canvases together to form multipartite compositions signals a contemporary understanding of how to push the medium in new directions. although this artist is self-taught, his formal excellence, evident commitment to process, and sophisticated understanding of his medium set these abstractions apart. despite the apparent simplicity of his work’s construction, these paintings are redolent with nuance and complexity."
