Gary Komarin, Paintings and Works on Paper
May 8 - June 20, 2015
Madelyn Jordon Fine Art is pleased to present GARY KOMARIN, Paintings and Works on Paper, Connecticut artist Gary Komarin’s first solo exhibition at Madelyn Jordon Fine Art, from May 8 – June 20, 2015. The exhibition will include recent paintings on canvas and works on paper. There will be a whimsical grid installation of the artist’s signature French Wigs, as well as his iconic Cakes, and Vessels. Private showings are by appointment.
Gary Komarin has been exhibiting his works for over 30 years. Known internationally for his unique style of painting that owes allegiance to abstract expressionism and color field genres, his canvases live on the border between image and abstraction. Intuitive gestures form the background of his boldly colored canvases, balanced, or unbalanced with an amalgam of scrawled, spontaneous drawing, drips and cartoonish, child-like forms. The forms—hats, bottles, pails— sometimes recognizable, sometimes not, are reminiscent of Martin Puryear’s sculptures—so familiar, they resist recognition.
