Vincent Lopreto was arraigned on Monday in State Supreme Court in Manhattan, pleading not guilty to several counts of grand larceny and fraud. Police picked up Lopreto and two associates after he sold fake Hirst prints to four Manhattan residents and an undercover investigator. Lopreto was also arrested in 2013, eventually pleading guilty to selling $1.5 million in forged art. In that case, he testified against an accomplice to receive a lighter sentence. Following his 2015 release, Lopreto revived his forgery operation almost immediately. Although he focused on relatively easy-to-fake Hirst works, which he sold to collectors at modest prices ($3,000–$5,000), Lopreto also attempted to pass off more complex pieces at higher costs. However, these fakes—including prints of Mickey Mouse in the style of Hirst—soon caused him difficulties. “The Mickeys are too hot,” Lopreto wrote in an email. “We need to get away from those.”

I’ve been thinking about this show off and on for about the last two weeks. In my head it’s been one of those shows that is hard to pin down. At times it’s sublime and at others it’s almost too obvious. Either way I’ve been thinking about it since I spent some time with the work.
The work sits on paper, sometimes there and sometimes not. Marks (or should I say watercolor brush strokes) are both quiet and strong, as well as almost non-existent. It is this elusive quality of the work that has kept me thinking and reflecting on the exhibition.
While Ms. Bächli ‘s work switches between abstraction and a type of realism it is this transparent and transcendent touch that rewards the viewer.

I don’t have any real problems with the weather, however, this winter in New York (and elsewhere) was pretty unrelenting. With multiple weeks where the temperature never got above freezing, I found my mind starting to wander about a lot of things. Among them was my artwork. During the 12th or 13th day off due to snow, I thought the studio deserved one too. So I opened my mind to new approaches and ideas. It turned into an avalanche of new work produced over a period of 2 – 3 weeks. This new body of work, became more than 70 artworks on paper in that time and I realized that maybe this was a snow day I would remember for quite some time.
The work represents a shift in the final image of the artwork, but less so about the approach. The images as always are processed based with attention given to the act of constructing and deconstructing the image while pursuing the final image. I view this approach as the result of a process that is questioned, documented, changed and eventually a realization that the entire process is never finished. What is leftover are markers to observe and gauge the decision points of the process along the way.
These are a couple of the new works on paper, paintings are currently drying and will be posted soon. Check my web site for more images.
