> DESCRIPTION

A retrospective survey of watercolors and drawings by noted abstract expressionist artist Michael Loew will open on Saturday 9 February at ACME Fine Art in Boston. A reception from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. will mark the occasion. The exhibition will be on view through Saturday 2 March at the gallery and on-line at www.acmefineart.com. 

The exhibition will be composed of works created between the late 1930s and 1985, and it highlights drawings and watercolors that were made as studies for paintings or murals, as well as finished, stand alone artworks.  

Michael Loew was a master of weaving geometry with nature. He seemed to delight in exploring the limits of nature based abstraction. Throughout his career one can see a back and forth between the almost totally abstract, and the representational. Although it is impossible to say how and where Loew's modern tendencies originated, it is fair to say that his experiences, his education, and his own interests led him in a distinctly avant-garde direction very early on. On the side of experience, one might point out his collaboration with DeKooning on a 1939 NYC World's Fair mural that led to a life-long friendship that must have influenced Loew. Certainly, his post war training under one of the most important nature-based abstract expressionists, Hans Hofmann, also proved to have had significant influence. Then, there was his study abroad at the Atelier Leger. Although various influences may have come to bear on Michael Loew, his work is always in his own true voice, and that voice is consistently clear, concise, and elegantly expressive. 

 A comprehensive exhibition catalogue including an essay by Susan C. Larsen is available through the gallery. Please contact ACME Fine Art for further information about Michael Loew, or this exhibition.
