2-TIMES  Art
Julian Schnabel,
The Patch of Blue
the Prisoner Calls
the Sky

@ Pace Gallery

The paintings are full
of dynamic surprises…
Small fire, a prism, and
a window-like opening
in a place with no wall,
blue sky beyond…

1951 – Brooklyn (NY), 
United States. 

‘The Patch of Blue
the Prisoner Calls
the Sky’: 
For this exhibition,
Schnabel presents
thirteen recent paintings
that catalogue the
possibilities of how
and what to paint,
revealing a new way
of looking at the world
that blurs the line
between representation
and configuration. 

These paintings
represent the evidence
of their
own autonomy.
They are metaphoric
in an open way, not to
as image
but as
and facets
of nature.
