Phil Wagner Opening at Untitled

People lingered at Phil Wagner's opening at Untitled Gallery in the LES Sunday night. He dialed up the color this time, rolled out wall to wall carpet, came off the walls onto the floor with sculpture in the round, tagged his assemblages with paint (a turn of the gyre for him) rimmed the whole show with a subtle aluminum edged detail, and introduced a series of drawings for the first time. When I walked in and saw the five drawings mounted on the wall like a runway to the main floor, Beckmann immediately came to mind. Then, as I walked through the carpeted floor, reverb of Picasso's Harlequins, Schwitters, Rauschenberg, Duchamp.
