||So who stands
out? . . . Josephine Haden who continues to baffle me with her paintings
which I've seen many times over the last few years . . . Haden uses broad
strokes to describe an ocean . . . not a meticulous sea painting here, but
broad, plain blue stokes that describe an almost naive ocean. And
that is just where Haden's work stops being naive. She then adds
landscape features, children on rafts, dogs, helicopters. You name
it, and Haden can paint it! This is an artist who can visualize a
collage (which is what her work initially appears to be) and uses a
talented brush to translate it into canvas.

. . . was Jonathan Binstock, contemporary art curator at the
Corcoran . . . The following pieces were the standouts in the show.
They motivated to give them TWO check marks . . . Josephine Haden's
piece "Globalization." I was drawn to the imagery and
the flatness and vagueness of composition.
