Painters Table: Eric Holzman at Lori Bookstein

Steven Alexander blogs about Eric Holzman: Small Paintings at Lori Bookstein Fine Art, New York, on view through February 07, 2015.

Alexander writes:

"While we might call these works landscape paintings, I would say that they are first and foremost paintings, that take elements of landscape as their subject or starting point... particularly the smallest pieces, read from a distance as virtual monochromes, then draw us into a dense amalgam of shapes and spaces that are at once as inviting and as impenetrable as nature itself. Several of the slightly larger paintings feature a heightened contrast between color-saturated sky and silhouetted trees, creating a hallucinatory presence that again emphasizes both the beauty and otherness of the landscape."
