Marilyn Lerner: Walking Backward Running Forward at Kate Werble Gallery

Brooklyn Rail - Art Review - September 16, 2018

The music hits you as you walk through the door of Kate Werble Gallery, where Walking Backward Running Forward, a new show of work by artist Marilyn Lerner, is on view. Though the music is not literal, the work on display is saturated with color so rich and so vibrant, the room pulsates with its sound. Lerner has been at her singular methods of geometric abstraction for thirty years, and as this exhibition attests, rather than leaping from one stylistic departure to the next, her work exists on a continuum, probing her processes into ever-deeper realms.
