“Biophilia” is a hypothesis, popularized by naturalist E.O. Wilson, that humans have an innate affinity for nature and a tendency to interact with other forms of life.
To artist and designer Robert Remer, the term speaks to his studio’s practice: merging manmade materials with plants to create furniture, sculpture and wall art.

As we celebrate this timely exhibition of Norman Carton’s phenomenal burst of works on paper in the Fifties and Sixties, let’s consider the rhythms of history, particularly the way a sudden boom is followed by a long echo. This is the pattern by which innovation is assimilated into a style.

For a classic example, consider the seamless way that Fay Lansner integrates the academic ethic of the life class with the sensuality of Abstract Expressionism. In “Fay Lansner: Figure and Form”—the intelligent and sensuous exhibition on view until August 23, 2018 at the Quogue Gallery—the artist reconciles what are conventionally held to be disparate aesthetics with the charm of appealing color and the authority of confident line.
In the artist’s statement for her exhilarating “Conversation in Color” exhibition of paintings and works on paper at the Quogue Gallery, Melinda Zox writes about painting being in her blood. Coming from the daughter of the brilliant abstract colorist Larry Zox and his wife Jean Glover Zox, also an artist, the statement can be taken literally. As the artist notes in the statement, her formative years presented “a continual lesson in the experience of art and creativity.
Partway around my second tour of the Sally King Benedict show of paintings and drawings pulsing with bright colors at Quogue Gallery, I was still searching for the right word for the arc sweeping upward in many of the works. Then I returned to the aptly titled Going Light and Bright Face.
