> DESCRIPTION

NOW” is a series of very high notes, chock full of color, powerful contrasts in value, texture, and abstract imagery.  There are references to previously indulging in abstract geometry, travels to France, impressions from literature, line versus mass. There exists a feeling that this show may be parallel to existential literature.  There is a lot of passion in Alan Soffer's work coming from a good place.

Alan Soffer has been compared to Rauschenberg, Rivers, Frankenthaler, Motherwell and Chagall among others.  The current emphasis on encaustics is a perfect marriage of his two loves - sculpture and painting.  He considers Joseph Campbell, the noted mythologist, his mentor.  Soffer is in numerous major collections including the Musee du Chateau, Montbeliard, and innumerable major collections.
