In his latest review Hyperallergic’s John Yau writes: At the heart of Nozkowski’s practice is improvisation, a willingness to take something (anything) and do something else to it. He seems to have been one of the few of his generation to understand Jasper Johns’s declaration: “Take an object. Do something to it. Do something else to it. Do something else to it, etc.” You can view works like this for yourself at Senior and Shopmaker Gallery on view til June 16th.
