New works by the American artist Alex Katz for his first show with Gavin Brown’s Enterprise in New York. The painter masterfully displays his large scale but intimate portraits along side several floral canvases. The artist is a surprising but perfect addition to the Gavin Brown roster with the stylized monumental works adding a dignity to the expanded gallery and serving as a perfect follow up to Spencer Sweeny’s younger generation portrait exhibition last year. Alex Katz at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise is on show until October 8th 2011. Text and photo Juliana Balestin.
