LARRY POONS with David Rhodes

A new exhibition Momentum at Yares Gallery will present paintings from 2017 by Larry Poons. The Brooklyn Rail has a wonderful interview with Poons. The exhibition is on display at YARES ART in New York City until October 28th, 2017.

Within the interview is this very evocative paragraph:

Poons: You don’t try something else—it’s all doing, no trying. When you buy clothes, you try them, ok, but in painting there is only doing. There are no rules, never have been. That doesn’t mean it’s freewheeling—painting has its own physics. And the physics reside in the human brain. 

Poon’s work is discussed several times in the book Abstract Painting: Concepts and Techniques .
