> DESCRIPTION

The gallery will present an exhibition of recent paintings by Tom Lieber. A painter of large, fluid abstractions, Lieber is, according to Carter Ratcliff, an artist whose work “invites us to note how complex the act of looking becomes when we attend carefully to its pleasures.” Commenting on his most recent works, Ratcliff revels in Lieber’s wide-open spaces inflected with jittery scrawls and sweeping streaks of paint, concluding that, although for some, formalism may have become old-fashioned, “Lieber’s paintings remind us that formalist analysis, often a necessity to be endured, becomes a pleasure to be sought out.” Each painting in this exhibition is loosely divided into two color fields, one atop the other, that meet at a “horizon” somewhere near the center. Lieber’s brush strokes explore below and impulsively shoot above this meeting point as if it were the intersection of earth and heaven, or consciousness and unconsciousness. Based in Hawaii, Tom Lieber’s paintings are in the collections of The Tate, Guggenheim, MOCA and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
