nothing is permanent, the art of letting go
The Devil Never Even Lived in James Siena’s Mesmerizing Typewriter Palindrome Drawings
With the delicate precision of a concert pianist, he tapped out letters, numbers, and punctuation in colored ink to produce eye-teasing abstractions.
This being James Siena, he had a system, so each of his cryptic texts came out reading the the same way forward and back. Reminiscent of medieval micrography, these delirious palindromes illuminate the interior poetry of math.
They’re on view for the first time in a new show at Sargent’s Daughters, which pairs them with Orly Genger’s madcap drawings of abstracted superhero limbs.

"I’m interested in expressing the big emotions—tragedy, ecstasy, doom." - Mark Rothko, born today in 1903.
[Mark Rothko. No. 3/No. 13. 1949]
Beijing artist Zhang Xinjun’s work is born out of his relationship with the common materials and objects found in his everyday life and how they relate to his local surroundings. He references a general history and his personal past through the objects and their new relationships between themselves. The elements that make up his installations are not intended to convey any specific or symbolic meaning, only to nurture an ambiguous setting suspended in time between childhood, the mother, daily life, memory, living spaces, society and the surrounding environment. —James Elaine, former Hammer Projects curator living in Beijing
