Announcing 52 Critical Painters!

Hello, dear readers! Kevin here. Today I am announcing, between sips of a damn fine bloody mary, the humble beginning of a year-long blogging project devoted to contemporary painters. Every Monday morning of 2019 I will feature a new artist— specifically someone exercising careful judgement or observation in ways that are of decisive importance to painting. Someone who has developed a voice, carved out a corner, imagined a vision, or otherwise set themselves apart from the myriad painters painting today.

Painting in 2019 is more multiplicitous than ever. Do you have a favorite living painter? Who do you think is challenging the limits of painting? Who is using painting to as a medium to challenge injustice? Whose artistic voices should be amplified? Comment below!
