Tamara Gonzales at Klaus von Nichtssagend
Gonzales’s paintings at first appear to be made of stitched together fabrics, a la peers like Lauren Luloff. Closer inspection reveals the illusion:
They’re all spraypaint on canvas, using various types of fabric stencils; as a result they’re somewhere between Michelle Grabner’s recent works at James Cohan, Christopher Wool’s floral-pattern silkscreens, and Polke’s fabric paintings. A totem-like spraypaint-on-wood wall sculpture throws a nice curveball into the mix.
