About the artist

RH Quaytman

R.H. Quaytman, born in 1961 to poet Susan Howe and abstract painter Harvey Quaytman, is an American artist best known for her abstract paintings on wood plywood panels. Quaytman’s paintings follow a few cardinal rules: they are titled in “chapters,” follow geometric dimensions, each chapter must relate to the site where it was first exhibited, and new chapters must relate to the one that preceded it. These sets of rules are not meant to limit Quaytman and her production; instead they are used as a way to explore a wide variety of subjects and themes while maintaining an overarching investigation of how a painting generates meaning. The production of each chapter utilizes not only painting techniques, but silk-screening, photography, and sculpture. Despite this, Quaytman has been quoted saying that painting is the first and foremost method on her mind. She is the subject of a new 2021 solo exhibition at WIELS Contemporary Art Centre in Brussels, Belgium, on view until the beginning of 2022. 


Quaytman has exhibited her work around the world, and is an educator in the arts in addition to her own practice. The artist currently lives and works in New York City.
