Larry Horowitz: Pathways Toward Abstraction (NY)

A new collection of work from Larry Horowitz featuring subjects observed and painted during his east coast travels. 

“Horowitz brings his relationship with places and times of day to bear in all of his paintings and by doing this he ultimately reveals his inner layers. Like Monet who continued to paint his beloved garden even after his eyesight weakened, Larry Horowitz transcends the simple 2-dimensional plane of the canvas and brings to the surface pathways toward abstraction.” 

~Leslie Lund

AGUSTÍ PUIG "The Innocence of Becoming"

Reception for the Artist:

THIS EXHIBITION RUNS NOVEMBER 10 - DECEMBER 31

Puig relies upon intuition to coax meaning from his raw materials. In this newest collection of paintings and works on paper, his art hovers between themes of the ancient past and the immediate present, earth and cosmos, contour and mass, figure and fragment, myth and matter. 

Puig’s figures seem to wrestle with the question that has occupied man since the beginning of time, “What does it mean to be human?”

THIS EXHIBITION RUNS THE MONTH OF OCTOBER

In his forward for the 2006 book, Gottfried Salzmann, Klaus Schroder, the curator of the Albertina, stated:

"For the Albertina, the collection of Salzmann watercolors owned by the museum is one of our most important treasures. Following the line from Albrecht Dürer, Rudolf Van Alt and the later Paul Klee, Salzmann establishes himself as a rightful heir and successor."

This newest collection builds on Salzmann’s work from the past and is highlighted with extraordinary aerial views of New York City.

THIS EXHIBITION RUNS THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER.

“If one were to establish a hierarchy within the subjects of art, I would place the human figure first and, in particular, the nude. I do not know why when I paint a nude it seems to me I touch something more intimate that connects me to all humanity.”
~Pierre Boncompain

Boncompain’s powerful new work graphically reflects these sentiments.
