The nonagenarian Rosalyn Drexler gets her third show with Garth Greenan, and the first dedicated to her paintings from the 1980s and ’90s. Drexler got her start as a sculptor and went on to have an exceptionally productive career that spanned novels, plays, and professional wrestling. But she is best known for her 1960s-era Pop art. After transitioning to works on canvas, she cleverly overcame her lack of drawing skills by developing a unique collage-based practice, painting over cut outs from magazines. Drexler’s compositions are often verging on the surreal, like this painting of a magician sawing his female assistant in half.
