self portrait, from upcoming show, COLOR ME BAD


James Fuentes! OH! ABELOW, final weekend... (run NYer's.)
and opening Feb 19th in Baltimore, Color Me Bad, Nudashank

Abelow's work is a disciplined exploration into the life, meaning and symbols of a painter. His
paintings exercise autobiography, color, rigid geometric abstraction, text and expressive
figuration. The works on paper are self-portraits that mock a perverse persona of himself as a painter.

Not to be overlooked is Abelow's activity as a writer and blogger. His poetry conveys an up to
date story of his life and work. ART BLOG ART BLOG, updated on an almost daily basis, offers a meticulously curated selection of artwork and images, links and text - this activity is reflective of a significant paradigm shift for visual culture today.
