Earning His Stripes

Daniel Buren The Colored ScreensStripes and solids, canvas and Plexiglas, past and present, inside and outside. Bortolami Dayan gallery's presentation of Daniel Buren's work seems to have it all. Within the gallery are Buren's studies of stripes and fabric from the 1960s. These minimalist paintings seem to be an ode to the awning. Outside in an empty lot underneath an abandoned subway line are recent works. These suspended colored Plexiglas squares reflect the natural light, and I'm sure will look even more incandescent after the predicted snowstorm hits on Wednesday.
