DESCRIPTION

Concurrently, Craig Krull Gallery will present its seventh solo exhibition of plein-air landscape painter Larry Cohen. Following his 2009 exhibition at the gallery, which was comprised of renderings of downtown Los Angeles from distant vantage points, Cohen has returned to the oceanfront with his new series “Views from the Coast”. These works interpret the Malibu Canyon area over the past few years in varying weather conditions, much like an Impressionist would translate the same scene in changing atmospheric conditions. Over the course of his four-decade career, Cohen has become recognized as one of the few accomplished plein-air painters of the constructed environment of Southern California. His works reflect the influence of his mentor Paul Wonner and other Bay Area Figurative School artists, as well as 19th century painters of light.
