1. Trevor Winkfield at Tibor de Nagy, Nov. 29, 2012–Jan. 12, 2013
Imagine a mad toymaker's workshop reconfigured as a page in Diderot's Encyclopedie or Juan Gris reincarnated as a Pop artist. Every millimeter of Trevor Winkfield's densely packed, highly calibrated paintings rewards careful looking. Long appreciated for his enigmatic iconography, Winkfield is also a master of abstract form; this exhibition was one of his best.
