Brooklyn-based artist Joshua Abelow makes fascinating and likeable paintings. When viewed as a group they look like a code of repetitive visual tropes; the same configuration broken down and painted over like colorimetry tests or quilts or typographic grids. Essentially what Abelow’s small and rational burlap canvases do is “a lot with a little” – simplicity that can be read into and a sensibility with colour that is as unexpected as it is pleasing.
