Frankenstein’s Raga

Noah Furman

June 11th – July 2nd, 2011

Noah Furman’s recent paintings deal with unitary forms- the letter, the hand, the brain- the body part truncated, amputated from the whole, the word’s mark separated from its meaning, mashed into a non-referent thing. They aspire to be primal and primary, indivisible into form and content, aiming at a trembling, quavering question of what it means to look and understand.
