de Kooning | Serra | Remington ~ Three Exhibitions to Open at Craig F. Starr Gallery in May




Willem de Kooning; Untitled [Two Women], 1947; Oil on paper; 20 x 16 inches; The Collection of Ronnie F. Heyman, Palm Beach, Florida
Craig F. Starr Gallery will open its doors to three exhibits on May 4th ~ Willem de Kooning: Men and Women, 1938-48 and Richard Serra: Transparencies, 2012-13 on the first floor, and Deborah Remington on the fourth floor.

Beginning with Willem de Kooning: Men and Women, 1938-48, the exhibition includes eight works made in the decade prior to the artist’s groundbreaking Woman paintings of the early 1950s. This selection offers an intimate overview of the evolution of de Kooning’s figures, from naturalistic to abstract, and focuses on themes of ambiguity, transformation, and doubling, which are evident not only in his compositions, but also in his working methods.

Richard Serra
Courtauld Transparency #6, 2013; Litho crayon on Mylar; 30 x 24 inches

A selection of drawings on Mylar from Richard Serra’s Transparency series will be on view almost a decade after the works were debuted at Craig F. Starr Gallery in 2012. The following year, Serra continued the series with a suite of drawings made for and exhibited at The Courtauld Institute of Art in London. Six drawings will be on view.

Deborah Remington, Soot Series 2, 1963. Soot and red crayon on muslin, 18 1/2 x 12 3/4 inches

Deborah Remington: Early Drawings will be on view on the fourth floor. Organized in collaboration with the artist’s estate, the exhibition will bring together many of Remington’s most iconic drawings from the career-defining period of the early-1960s to ealry-1980s, including several rarely exhibited works on loan from prestigious private collections. The exhibition will run concurrently with a five-decade survey of Remington’s work at Bortolami Gallery in Tribeca.

The exhibitions, de Kooning | Serra | Remington will be on view from May 4 to July 30, 2021 at Craig F. Starr Gallery, 5 East 73rd Street, NYC.
