Christina Quarles: Come In From An Endless Place

The figure paintings on view in Christina Quarles’s exhibition of new work at Hauser & Wirth are like nothing you’ve seen before. In them, arching curves sweep, spin, fall, and rise in what seem like single gestures, so it is startling to realize that those lyrically abstract lines actually limn the contours of distended and knotted arms, legs, torsos, buttocks, breasts, and heads.
