For the 1st in-depth exam of Levine, Howard Singerman surveys a wide selection of resources, either historic and theoretical, to evaluate an artist whose paintings used to be understood from the outset to problem either the label "artist" and the assumption of oeuvre—and who has over the last 3 a long time crafted an important oeuvre of her personal. Singerman addresses Levine’s paintings after Evans, Brancusi, Malevich, and others as an experimental paintings ancient practice—material reenactments of ways the murals background is usually doubled in and dependent by means of language, and of the methods the artwork itself resists.
