Installation view, with three paintings hanging on a white wall, each of them featuring horizontal lines of varying colors that stack atop each other as in a rainbow or a sunset; then four sculptures sitting atop a table before the paintings—each bold shapes of blue and one of white.

Sneak this with those sculptures in mission?

An artist we’ve worked with who is also a curator in his own right and a friend reached out with a body of work by his grandmother – incredible, simple, striped paintings made in the sixties. We’d seen Paula Brunner Abelow’s work before hung alongside Joshua Abelow and his sister Tisch Abelow. This suite of works was striking, with a palette all its own.

Something about them made us think about the work of another artist we’d recently met with: Renée Gertler. Specifically her sculptures: strange, charmed little monochromatic geometries, they’d been on our mind since we showed a work in a mini-exhibition on an office desk.

Made fifty years apart, there was a ring to the pairing that we could all agree with.
Sometimes it’s as easy as that.
