Few artists possess the sort of free-ranging, exploratory style and vocabulary that seems to mark the output of artist Charline von Hehl. The German-born painter’s work is relentlessly committed to the canvas as a space for both formal reinvention and ongoing investigation. Moving through a new selection of works this fall at Petzel Gallery, von Heyl returns to this mode, presenting a series of new compositions that marks her continued interest in texture and space as formative modes of the painter’s internal language.
