Decorazon Gallery sent me a notice of their new artist, Erin Cone. The gallery once showed in Dallas. I guess they still have some connection to Texas, but it looks to me that they moved to NYC and London. Well, Erin Cone is refining some interesting alternative modernists like Philip Pearlstein and Tamara de Lempicka. Pearlstein for Cone's bold cropping and de Lempicka because of Cone's stylized realism. She also uses very minimal background and clothing to finish off the picture. Cone mixes the flat plan with a sometime dimensional figure. A good artist to represent.
