JOE BRADLEY. Man Made Dirigible. 2008
Like Josh Smith, Joe Bradley makes paintings in many different stylistic modes. His Man Made Dirigible, one of a group of paintings of radically simplified forms, can be seen as an ancient pictograph or a contemporary emoticon; the very first image and the most recent one at the same time.

Oscar Murillo MOMA
OSCAR MURILLO
Probably not coincidentally, the craze for zombies and vampires is congruent with the phenomenon of the retrieval and revival of past styles. Abstraction is a language primed for becoming a representation of itself, because as much as it resists attributions of narrative, it cannot help but carry with it the entire utopian history of modern painting. Colombian-born, London-based Oscar Murillo often treats his expressionist marks as bits of iconography. His gestures function in a similar way to the words that he also often incorporates into his compositions; they can be "read" as signs, in the literal sense of the kind of unmediated personal expression exemplified by postwar modernist painters.

Hard-edge color resonates with the specters of Abstract Expressionism and Clement Greenberg.
