The artist presents a solo exhibition at Richard Gray Gallery, Chicago: large-scale landscapes which draw on the nature outside his studio in Maine
‘Light is what holds my paintings together’, the artist Alex Katz says, ‘when I finally get the light right, it gets into the unconscious’. For his solo exhibition at Richard Gray Gallery, Chicago, ‘Grass and Trees’, the painter debuts new large-scale landscapes inspired by three motifs – grasses, roads and trees – drawing on the view from outside his studio in Maine. While the ‘Road’ and ‘Trees’ paintings reference his well-known graphic style, Katz offers a more immersive sense of space in his ‘Grass’ compositions.
Alex Katz, ‘Grass and Trees’, is on view at Richard Gray Gallery, Chicago, and runs until 2 June. For more information visit the Richard Gray Gallery website here.
