Bert Green Fine Art is pleased to present a solo show of new paintings by Shane Guffogg and a group show of prints and drawings by Greg Colson, Raeleen Kao, Scott Horsley, White Wings Press and Aardvark Letterpress.

Shane Guffogg lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. He is a painter of lyrical abstraction. This new body of work is a disciplined dialog with an ancient work of Leonardo da Vinci’s called “Genevra de Benci”, a portrait of a woman. Guffogg was impressed with this painting when he saw it in person a number of years ago. He uses the portrait as a starting point for an exploration of the underlying principles of painting; how dissimilar approaches within the medium can achieve analogous ends — an elegant, subtle, energetic presence. The works in this series share formal quailities of color and shape with the original, yet depart in other ways; the end result being a masterful series of paintings which advance and expand the tradition.

There will be an artists reception on Saturday, September 22 from 4 – 7 pm, and a closing reception on Saturday, October 20 from 4 – 7 pm.
