Raymond Pettibon “Hard In The Paint” at David Zwirner

November 4, 2010

Raymond Pettibon opens an exhibition of new works, Hard In The Paint at David Zwirner on Saturday evening. Pettibon’s new work does look intriguing, and some nice color use. This is definitely worth checking out, and not just because he used a Waka Flocka song as his exhibition title.

“This exhibition takes its title from basketball terminology: used to describe a player moving within the rectangular and usually painted area below the net, “hard in the paint” indicates the difficulty in scoring from this angle amidst defensive pressure. In slang, it is also used to denote a confident, tough, or aggressive disposition, and as such, it is reflective of the directness of Pettibon’s work. Hard in the Paint presents a wide range of drawings unified by their bold, vivid lines and striking compositions.”
