Art Southampton is directed by Nick Korniloff, who also brings Art Miami and Art Miami New York among many others. His shows attracts the leading galleries around the world, making each fair as prestigious as the last. Casterline|Goodman Gallery will be among those galleries selected to exhibit.
Alex Katz has partnered with Barneys and Art Production Fund to produce a capsule collection featuring everything from a water bottle to a limited edition portfolio. Katz has also created a custom mural, which is installed in the windows of Barneys in New York City to promote the collection. The 60 foot wide mural depicts Yvonne Force Villareal, Doreen Remen, Casey Fremont, Elizabeth McAvoy and of course, his wife Ada.
The Wall Street Journal recently featured Casterline|Goodman Gallery in an article on “high-profile” art galleries in Aspen, Colorado. The article also highlights Alex Katz’s 1968 Impala (Study) and Louise Bourgeois’s 2009 Les Fleurs, both for sale by Casterline|Goodman Gallery. Praised as an “Aspen stalwart,” Casterline|Goodman is highly regarded for presenting secondary works by significant modern and contemporary artists. The article applauds Casterline|Goodman Gallery for providing high-end work to a wide range of clients from Europe, Brazil, Australia and Japan. Robert Casterline stated: “When I first opened 20 years ago, people immediately thought they were paying too much in a tourist town, but in the last 7 to 10 years…slowly the investors, collectors and consumers aren’t looking at buying investment art in a tourist town as a negative.”
Why Alex Katz's Exhibition in Aspen is "The Katz Meow"
One might call Alex Katz a modern Mannerist. Eschewing the “holy trinity” of “content, form, and subject” extolled by his American contemporaries in the 1950s and ’60s, the New York-born artist shunned the expressionistic abstractions, exaggerated Pop compositions, and spare, Minimalist assemblages pursued by the likes of Jackson Pollock, Roy Lichtenstein, and Donald Judd, and instead pioneered a distinct formal style that favored understated drama over naturalism while reviving the art of figuration, from portraiture to landscape painting. Marked by smooth, flat surfaces, hazy-eyed subjects with seemingly airbrushed skin, and sun-dappled domestic backgrounds, Katz’s distinctive paintings embodied an unsettling yet saccharine sort of Americana.
