Louis Stern Fine Arts is pleased to announce Dots and Slants, an exhibition of recent work by James Little.
This New York-based artist’s disciplined craftsmanship is in full force in these commanding recent paintings. Little maintains intimate control over every step in his painting process, formulating his own materials and devising new application methods in a fusion of scientific and artistic practice he likens to “alchemy.” Developed over decades, these time- and labor-intensive techniques imbue Little’s works with an uncommon potency. The recent Dots take a departure from the tight, crisply arrayed vertical stripes and chevrons that for years have characterized Little’s work. The robust diagonal slashes of color that zip across Little’s Slants are executed in raw organic pigment, mixed with an acrylic vehicle and silica based medium to create a luminous matte effect.
