Rowing collects 55 works on paper by artist Mason Saltarrelli. The oversized hardcover volume is Saltarrelli's first major publication and documents over a decade of the artist's practice, including work from 2008–2019. Rowing allows readers to meander over both the front and back of layered scenes—gouache, graphite, color pencil and paint create a beguiling palimpsest occasionally punctuated by loose, barely-there figuration, eyes and faces are both human and animal. The pieces are saturated, worked into on front, on verso, and meant to be viewed in calm, contemplative succession.
Rowing is a springboard, a place where narrative abounds, one just has to look for themselves to find it.
With texts by Saltarrelli and Julian Schnabel.
