Art Basel To Launch Online Viewing Rooms

In a sense, Zak Prekop is a ‘traditional’ abstract painter, reminiscent of DeKooning, Kline, and Motherwell. However, his deliberate, impeccable precision sets him firmly apart from his AbEx predecessors. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‘Standing’ (2019), like many of Prekop’s oil on muslin works, is not made by painting lines, but rather, by applying numerous, sometimes uncountable, layers and grids atop a ground of loose, overall brushstrokes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The intricate process of applying paint on paint is how he achieves the fine degree of patterning that compose the final works. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At Art Basel Miami Beach 2019, @EssexStreetGallery presented three new Prekop works, ‘Standing’ (pictured), ‘Darkroom’, and ‘Remko’. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #zakprekop #essexstreetgallery #abstractexpressionism #contemporarypainting #oilpainting #artbasel #artbaselmiami #artbaselmiamibeach

In light of cancelling Art Basel Hong Kong due to the coronavirus, Art Basel is launching online viewing rooms to offer exhibitors a platform to sell the works they were planning on showing. The inaugural edition will go live on March 20.
