Line and Image: The Northern Sensibility in Recent European Drawing

The unifying factors in Line and Image are visual. They intimate and often embody the subject matter that might concern a northern European artist, as argued above, but they by no means bespeak a common subject matter among the artists.

Morality Tales

Morality Tales: History Painting in the 1980s examines the catalyst between past and present to critique the public issue of morality and morally conscious art. This integration of historical forms and compositions with contemporary figures and situations forms the cornerstone of the exhibit, questioning the moral relationship between the viewer, artist, and subject.

After Matisse

The significance of Matisse definitely cannot be understated, and there was a particular time in the 1980s during which his influence was revived. Experimentation with color and the non-representational, as well as the uncoordinated swathes that exemplify his style can be seen in a variety of work, from Mark Rothko to Roy Lichtenstein.

Drawings: After Photography

The resurgence of painting that has characterized contemporary art production since the 1970s of course has carried with it intense activity in the field of drawing. Though not as valued a currency (or as expensive to produce) as works on canvas or bronze, drawings flow into the market, insuring the continued vitality (or at least credibility) of the painter’s or sculptor’s trade.

Verbally Charged Images

Verbally Charged Images demonstrates how text can be used to alter one’s perception or preconceptions of the visual image by providing a subjective framework, thus reversing the traditional image-text relationship in which the image illustrates the text. Although the mode of rhetoric varies from work to work, as does the location of the text in relation to image, text in these works “charges” the image as the title suggests, pointing to the artist’s conceptual intentions. The text, it must be emphasized, never simply describes, illustrates, or functions congruently with the image.
