Artist Joseph Holtzman discusses his strikingly original paint ings in this overview of his work.

\n

 \;Joseph Holtzman&rsquo\;s unusual artistic sensibility evolved from his close study of historical pai nting and his connoisseurship of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century decorat ive arts. His themes and motifs draw on these diverse sources as well as al lude to family and friends\, cultural personalities\, historical figures\, and literary characters. Balancing his wide-ranging references is an intens ely sensual connection to paint and surface. \;

Holtzman (b. 1957) is highly attentive to the unique qualities of color and texture tha t can be expressed through the medium of paint on various grounds. His pale tte is fantastically rich and varied and he achieves remarkable chromatic a nd tonal effects by exploiting not only the transparency of the oil medium but also the unusual capacity of marble&mdash\;his favorite surface&mdash\; to absorb and reflect light. He pays as much attention to the tiniest detai ls of the paintings as he does to their overall compositions. To contemplat e Holtzman&rsquo\;s paintings is to become immersed&mdash\;indeed\, nearly lost&mdash\;in a strange yet beautiful universe.

His themes and motifs dra w on these diverse sources as well as allude to family and friends\, cultur al personalities\, historical figures\, and literary characters. Balancing his wide-ranging references is an intensely sensual connection to paint and surface. \;

Holtzman (b. 1957) is highly attentive to the u nique qualities of color and texture that can be expressed through the medi um of paint on various grounds. His palette is fantastically rich and varie d and he achieves remarkable chromatic and tonal effects by exploiting not only the transparency of the oil medium but also the unusual capacity of ma rble&mdash\;his favorite surface&mdash\;to absorb and reflect light. He pay s as much attention to the tiniest details of the paintings as he does to t heir overall compositions. To contemplate Holtzman&rsquo\;s paintings is to become immersed&mdash\;indeed\, nearly lost&mdash\;in a strange yet beauti ful universe.

Many of Holtzman&rsquo\;s paintings are portraits though their subjects may only emerge for him in the process of painting: F rieda (Holtzman&rsquo\;s mother)\, Monsieur de Charlus (the dissolute arist ocrat in Proust&rsquo\;s \;In Search of Lost Time)\, Mary Todd Lincoln (&ldquo\;a driven decorator\,&rdquo\; according to Holtzman)\, the composer Stephen Sondheim\, and Holtzman&rsquo\;s husband\, Carl Skoggard. These subjects are evoked less through accurate depictions of their bodies and faces than through settings and related objects that\, like saintly &l dquo\;attributes\,&rdquo\; convey symbolic meaning. \;

Throu gh his highly personal and inventive engagement with painting\, Holtzman ha s invested new life into this versatile medium while nodding to the admired forebears of his\, and our\, cultural past. \;

Berkeley-based artist John Zurier (b. 1956) paints abstract\ , luminous canvases with hand-mixed pigments that range from subtle\, muted earth tones to vibrant\, saturated hues. He uses a wide range of brushwork and surface treatments to draw attention to the varied textures of the can vas&mdash\;often applying distemper (a tempera paint made with dry pigments in animal glue) in thin brushy layers&mdash\;to capture qualities of light and the changing effects of the atmosphere. He builds compositions that ar e both simple and involved\, paying close attention to all aspects of a pai nting&rsquo\;s construction\, including the differences between cotton and linen surfaces\, the weave of each canvas\, and the individual properties o f tempera versus oil paint. Informed by a wide range of references&mdash\;A bstract Expressionism\, Italian Renaissance painting\, Minimalism\, Japanes e painting\, and poetry&mdash\;Zurier&rsquo\;s work transcends the mundane to enter an affective realm. &ldquo\;I&rsquo\;m very interested in how comp ositional formats and motifs and even incidents in a painting can trigger p erceptual responses and associations\,&rdquo\; Zurier says.

Born in Santa Monica\, Zurier received both his BA and MFA from the University of California\, Berkeley. For \;MATRIX 255\, his first solo exhibition in a museum\, Zurier debuts a new body of paintings and wa tercolors inspired by Iceland\, where he has been traveling\, teaching\, an d painting since 2011. Zurier&rsquo\;s abstractions evoke the ice\, fog\, w ind\, water\, and light of the Icelandic landscape\, while also tapping int o more timeless\, contemplative states. Icy pale blue tones predominate\, r evealing the infinite range of the hue\, as each composition strikes a uniq ue\, sensitive chord. \;

In the years just followi ng the Revolutionary War\, many newly minted Americans desired painted port raits for their homes in order to identify individuals\, establish family l egacy\, and demonstrate personal and/or civic achievement. Artists usually chose to portray their subjects in conventional poses\, with the greatest e mphasis placed on individual facial features. Clothing and surroundings wer e often simple and stylized\, but might include details that would have bee n understood at the time as signs of social status or phase of life. \;

Portrait of a Boy in Green \;(c. 1805&ndash\;1810) \, attributed to the prolific deaf artist John Brewster\, Jr.\, depicts a p oised and vibrant youth standing on a brightly patterned floor holding a bo ok\, which associates him with learning and apprenticeship. The boy is thou ght to be Samuel Field McIntire\, son of a prominent Salem\, Massachusetts architect. The younger McIntire went on to become a distinguished and highl y successful furniture designer and carver of architectural details. \;

The exhibition also includes a number of landscapes\, ranging f rom pastoral scenes to views of industrial progress. \;View of Prov idence\, Rhode Island\, created in the mid-1820s by an unidentified ar tist\, functions as a portrait\; the coastal city is portrayed on the brink of transition from pioneer village to bustling center of commerce. With re markable beauty and formal simplicity\, the works of art in \;A merican Wonder \;evoke the vivid presentness of their subjects and makers. \;
