I'm a fan of prepositions - in, on, through, above, against, within, around, before, beside, from, onto, over, under - I'm especially a fan of prepositions in painting. Zak Prekop plays will the full list, working with painterly space, transparency, collage, and form. The materiality of the surface becomes a slowly evolving revelation for the viewer. This is new work from his show at Thomas Duncan.
