Art In America

Florian Pumhösl

at Miguel Abreu Gallery,
88 Eldridge St. and 36 Orchard St.

In his first U.S. solo, spanning Abreu's Orchard Street location and his new venue on Eldridge Street, the Vienna artist Florian Pumhösl offers achingly elegant paintings, based on either the letter forms of the Georgian alphabet or an early 19th-century map of a fantasy of Israel drawn by a Russian rabbi. Each line is created with a rubber stamp on a ceramic panel. These abstractions based on abstractions are alive with references to art historical and literary precedents, and are a stripped-down visual feast.
