Mark Adams and Beth Van Hoesen chose realism at a time when other artists were creating abstract works of art. Many of the lithographs and etchings in the exhibition are up-close looks at nature and everyday objects. Mark Adam’s large prints present single objects— a glass jar, cigar box or martini glass at a size much bigger than real life. Van Hoesen’s attention is more often focused on nature ra...   [more]

With Fifteen Seconds, Lia Lowenthal places Henry Moore, known primarily for his large-scale public works, in the confining and transient space of an elevator. Lowenthal recreates Moore’s sculptures as diagrammatically painted renderings on clear plastic, photographed on site in Art in General’s elevator. As interpreted by the camera, the painted plastic suggests three-dimensionality, but also reveal...   [more]

Painting around Montauk, Phyllis Chillingworth captures the energy felt amongst the indigenous Shadblow trees and windy meetings of sky and water. In her work the rhythmic layers of many washes and vigorous brush strokes express a new kind of force, not one of reality, but one of personal invention. Using the purity of color and spontaneous movement she liberates the viewer from all that is material. De...   [more]

Meera Thompson comments on the title: “In music capriccio is a piece that in performance is lively and free. And in the visual arts the term capriccio can be used to describe a picture that suggests an imaginary place. I call this group of paintings Capriccio because the word refers both to the way I paint and what I paint. I believe that when we scan the horizon we are searching for a sense of possi...   [more]

Utilizing the thousands year old technique of encaustic wax with oil, the paintings are sculpted by her palette knife.  Various lines an...   [more]

Janice Nowinski has never shied from confronting the past—her investigations have ranged from Old Master works to the tradition of painting the still life—but in her newest body of work she risks a more personal and somewhat confessional approach. A collection of snapshots from a summer idyll with a complicated friend instigates many of the works in the show. Shrouded, distant and ambivalent in m...   [more]
