Favorite Paintings from the Venice Biennale

This post is a little late in coming but I'm still working to wrap my head around all the work at the Venice Biennale.  Truth be told project didn't hold together for me. Don't get me wrong there was a lot of outstanding beautiful, funny, gut-wrenching work but curatorially I felt a little adrift.

Here are some of the standout paintings in the show.

Nicole Eisenman, Going Down River on the USS J-Bone of an Ass, 2017, Oil on canvas

Nicole Eisenman, Achilles Heel, 2014, Oil on canvas
