Works on Papers

Two artists exploit yesterday’s news while a third capitalizes on the discarded notes of others.

  1. 1. David Godbold

    At Mitchell-Innes & Nash through May 25

    Mini ink drawings of religious scenes are overlaid onto found scraps of paper, like shopping lists and love letters, creating ironic twists punctuated with added text.

  2. 2. Guy Richards Smit

    At Roebling Hall through April 28

    Smit puts brush to newspaper illuminating political headlines and stories in the New York Times with his own sarcastic musings: Watercolors rarely have such bite.

  3. 3. Paul Thek

    At Alexander and Bonin through May 12

    Similarly using the New York Times as canvas, Thek allows text to peek through his thick, vibrant abstractions.
