Chelsea Gallery Notes: Luisa Rabbia, Wendy White, James Welling, Eugen Schönebeck, Analia Saban, Adam Cvijanovic, Joe Fig, Chris Dorland, Martha Friedman, Christian Maychack, Saint Clair Cemin, Louise Fishman, and more.

The Chelsea gallery area stretches primarily from 29th St. to 16th St., between 10th and 11th Avenues. Generally when I go, I don’t have a set agenda, but typically visit the same places where I’ve seen good work in the past, plus randomly sticking my head in the door in others, to see if anything has changed. Today’s post shows what I saw in September. I’ve arranged the galleries from north to south. Most galleries will open their second shows of the season in the next two weeks.

Luisa Rabbia at Peter Blum, 526 W.29th St.

Loved the little heads stuck to the wall.

Eugen Schönebeck at David Nolan, 527 W. 29th St.

Joe Fig at Cristin Tierney, 546 W. 29th St.

Chris Dorland at Winkelman Gallery, 621 W. 27th St.

Nice riff on corporate logos, advertising and consumption. 

Martha Friedman at Wallspace, 619 W. 27th St.

I stepped into the gallery and I thought: I wish I had done this. 

Christian Maychack at Jeff Bailey Gallery, 625 W. 27th St.

Very interesting: idiosyncratic painting/sculpture hybrids. 

Saint Clair Cemin at Paul Kasmin, 515 W. 27th St.

Mr. at Lehman Maupin, 540 W. 26th St.

Chris Johanson at Mitchell-Innes & Nash, 534 W. 26th St.

Richard Misrach at Robert Mann Gallery, 525 W. 26th St

Julian Hoeber at Harris Lieberman, 508 W. 26th St.

Nods to Bridget Riley and Josef Albers, but with doubts.

Louise Fishman at Cheim & Read, 547 W. 25th St.

Fishman seems to be synthesizing Richter and De Kooning in this work.

Ruud van Empel at Stux Gallery, 530 W. 25th St.

Too precious for me.
