Spring Breakers - Venus Over Manhattan
Zhong, Fan. “Spring Breakers.” W Magazine, April 3, 2014.
Astride giant swells or a still ocean, it’s a welcome break from this eternal winter to visit
the shore with two new exhibitions. At Venus Over Manhattan, the SoCal artist
Raymond Pettibon’s 40 works devoted to surfing bear the comic-book strokes of his
mythopoetic style. And while Oregon-based Dan Attoe’s depictions of frolickers in the
water, on view at Peres Projects in Berlin, aren’t as action-packed, they are no less
monumental in tone. “Dan Attoe: Landscapes With Water” is on view through April 19
at Berlin’s Peres Projects, Karl-Marx-Allee 82. “Are Your Motives Pure? Raymond
Pettibon Surfers 1987-2012” runs from April 3 to May 17 at New York’s Venus Over
Manhattan, 980 Madison Ave.
