stunned by the news of marcia hafif’s passing. here’s a current work in progress in my studio that assembles social media references and other traces of marcia’s paintings’ impact on visual culture. at a point that misogyny and violence against women is so starkly visible, i’ve wanted to be close to the women who have shaped me and my practice. thank you for what you taught me about surface, presence, eroticism, meditation, containment, expanse, and a willingness to participate in something perpetual in painting. #marciahafif

in 2011, my pals @becoming_anti_work @lady_thunder_maker @lullabiesforbatzzz @ericruschman and i had the great honor of bringing a suite of marcia hafif’s paintings to cincinnati, just a few months before eric + i moved to chicago. we produced a small catalogue for ‘glaze paintings,’ w a phenomenal essay by @walkinginthecitymh. a brief passage: ‘with these paintings of hafif’s, unquestionably time stops as there is no diachronic temporality to this work, no sequence of one after another... the stillness that is the world of the paintings s the present held still so that it is also the paintings’ future.’ goodbye, marcia. #marciahafif

few other painters have been as formative for my work as marcia hafif. conceptually considerate and sensuous, charging monochrome surfaces and the spaces in which they’re displayed. color, mark, interval, operation of a medium. this is one of my favorites, in the collection of @sueravitz and al ravitz. today’s loss is palpable. #marciahafif
