Last Sunday Misako & Rosen opened a new exhibition of Nathan Hylden’s work. This is his sophomore show at the gallery, the last one dating all the way back to 2007. The seven paintings on view (four acrylics and silkscreen on aluminum, and three acrylics on canvas) help to trace the artist’s preoccupation with the processes and the effects of pigment application. The regular grid of silkscreen dots enhances the lightness inherent in aluminum, making the works hover above the surface of the wall. In contrast, the paintings on canvas absorb the light, bringing forth the materiality of the texture of the support.

The show will be on through October 31.
