An Ab-Ex painter and an amazing person who saw the brutality of the world and massacre of which America was a part. He couldn’t resist himself from painting. He was not frustrated with the fact that the war was not ending, he was upset with the fact that the only thing he could do was just sit around read magazines and change red to blue in his studio. He was so good at pointing out expressions through paintings that a suite of ink drawings he made skewered the 37th American President. But this isn’t it, for the first time his 100 additional never seen work and some the best featured 180 Nixon satires go on to display this year as one of the top shows in New Year, thanks to Hauser & Wirth’s downtown New York space.

An artist who has devoured herself to creating a global black canon of painting where there is no trace of any; she is one of the best painters of her generation. A 2013 Turner prize finalist her oil paintings are what the people describe as portrait of the idea of portraiture. She has some classics painted and her up to date survey work goes on view at New Museum in April. No wonder she has her name on the 2017 art world updates on artists.
