On view January 27-February 26, 2022 at Brickbottom Gallery.
Opening reception Sunday, February 6, from 3 to 5 p.m.
The three painters — Alexandra Rozenman, Jo Ann Rothschild, and Philip Gerstein, friends and allies in real life – come together in this show, delighting in the seeming contradiction of their styles. The intention is to present both realist and abstract paintings together, grouped in trios. This unusual arrangement will allow to contrast and compare each artist’s different, equally engaging approach to forming a composition, unifying the painterly field of action, and utilizing color in emotional, constructive and psychologically complex ways.
As painters, and especially color-based painters, we now live in particularly exciting times. We can choose to situate ourselves on the shoulders of so many giants, aided by the universal availability of art historical images in full color over the web.
