Julian Schnabel, View of Dawn In The Topics: Paintings, 1989-1990 @ Gagosian Gallery

Can we all just accept that Julian Schnabel is an awesome filmmaker and isn’t a very good painter. It’s funny, but I think I would take Harmony Korine’s paintings over Schnabel’s. I do wish Korine had some of the crazy delusional bombast of Schnabel’s paintings, but outside of one purple and pink painting, Schnabel’s new show is just large, ugly paintings with a color palate right out of a Serra sculpture mixed with a duller crimson red.
