'Episodes with Wayne Thiebaud' by Eve Aschheim and Chris Daubert

In 'Episodes with Wayne Thiebaud', Eve Aschheim and Chris Daubert interview Wayne Thiebaud in four extensive conversations in his studio. Thiebaud, known for his iconic paintings of cakes, pies, and counter displays, is one of the last living painters of the Pop era. Staunchly maintaining his independence from that group and others, he went on to develop vertiginous cityscapes, deeply abstracted rural landscapes, and most recently, monolithic mountains. In these extended conversations, conducted between 2009 and 2011, Thiebaud reveals himself to be extremely well read, articulate, humorous, self-­deprecating, and opinionated. Covering a wide range of topics, he discusses his early years in New York, where he became friends with Willem and Elaine de Kooning and hung out at the Cedar Tavern; his return to California; the many influences on his work (Krazy Kat, Persian miniatures, de Kooning, Diebenkorn, Hopper, Balthus, de Chirico); his working methods and thoughts on painting; and his advice to young artists.

Eve Aschheim / New York

Eve Aschheim’s approaches to image-making, concern line and light, interior and exterior space, rhythm and pattern, and gesture and a sense of play conveyed using the medium’s unique processes and material. As a single body of work, Aschheim’s luminous, shimmering, intimate photograms evoke architectural and natural space, and affirm the value of the handmade, constructed, and seen. Each resulting image captures the presence and process of emotion, searching, and thinking; for the viewer, looking at the images provokes feeling, exploration, and thought.Aschheim’s assembled and constructed images retain a semingly contradictory sense of vulnerability, openness, and surprise.

Eve Aschheim is a Lecturer at the Visual Arts Program at Princeton University. New York.
Recent solo exhibitions include: Galleri Magnus Aklundh, Lund, Sweden; Galerie Inga Kondeyne, Berlin; and Larry Becker Contemporary Art, Philadelphia.

David Rhodes / Berlin

Rhodes’s work, all untitled, is part of the body of mostly black and white paintings that have occupied him for the past few years. Variously thin, taped, near-verticals, under which paint bleeds, make soft-edged lines that zip and zag, running up and down, not quite matching or aligning. In Rhodes’s images there are hints of signage, design, planning, mapping, traffic, interchanges, grains, wedging, each which their own conditions of place and space, layers or flatness: compact, energetic, open and closed, pressed and stacked, fitted and busting out, the world seeping in, the world beyond the painting, all struggling at the edges of the the conventional, containing rectangle. And there is a sense of playfulness and virtue found in no hesitation, repetition, following process, acceptance of decoration, and the value of work for work’s sake.

Widely exhibited, David Rhodes, is also a prolific writer about art, most recently for Artforum, The Brooklyn Rail, and Art Critical. Recent catalog texts include writing about: Ernst Wilhelm Nay for Michael Werner Gallery/Mary Boone Gallery; Nathan Peter for PSM Galerie, Berlin; Henri Matisse for Museum Ludwig, Cologne; and Mary Heilmann for Museum Ludwig, Cologne.
