Add to Calendar 18-04-2013 11-05-2013 15 Alan Gussow: Interrupted Spring DRISCOLL BABCOCK GALLERIES presents Interrupted Spring, an exhibition of oil paintings and works on paper by Alan Gussow (1931-1997), which captures the energy of natural environment through a lively synthesis of abstract expressionism and realism, presenting a profound and poetic artistic vision. Gussow's unique imagery conveys the intimate link between man and the environment, invoking his personal encounters with the smells, sounds, tastes, and tactile sensations of nature. "His paintings are elegant, joyous, celebratory and occasionally elegiac representations of the world he treasured and embraced, the world of natural phenomena," notes John Driscoll, president of Driscoll Babcock. With nature as his muse, Gussow sought to reconcile his perceptual experiences and transform them into persuasive visual expression. Many works in this exhibition --Interrupted Spring (1975), Vegetable Garden in a March Rain (1975) and Edges of A Delayed Spring (1987) -- reflect Gussow's intuitive awareness of the shifting colors and textures of the changing seasons, as thawing frost and spring rain make way for a lush explosion of buds and greenery. The rich color associations and fluctuating brushstrokes in these works suggest a dynamic shift in focus from the panorama towards the detail, and a new emphasis on the rhythm, color, and texture of the productive earth. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=135367 Driscoll Babcock Galleries true DD/MM/YYYY
