Rezi van Lankveld’s new works at Petzel Gallery’s uptown outpost are unapologetically beautiful paintings of thick impasto and sweeping movement where hints of the real are only allowed to peek through in the form of shadows or highly abstracted forms. The Dutch artist’s sense of color is superb. Rich purples blend harmoniously with subtle greys and artichoke greens. One particularly fetching work takes the viewer on an exhilarating upward journey into cool blues: midnight into blue-green interspersed by hints of pink and beige. Another one is a brilliant study of the color grey. Van Lankfeld’s deliberately bucks the mega-size trend of other artists. Her intimately scaled works belie their immense emotive impact and sheer joy that they extract. Through February 25.
