IMPORTANT WORKS ON PAPER
June 25 – August 28, 2015
Jonathan Novak Contemporary Art is pleased to present Important Works on Paper, featuring notable examples of Abstraction, Minimalism, Pop, and Photorealism.
The exhibition covers a vast array of expression upon one of the most essential, raw mediums: paper. This unforgiving surface honestly reveals the artist’s expertise in a unique way.
Important Works on Paper offers a variety of visual language including Wayne Thiebaud’s iconic and dramatic landscapes, Sam Francis’ vibrant explosions of color, Ralph Goings’ expertly painted reflections of light, and Jean Dubuffet’s rudimentary yet striking figuration.
The exhibition is comprised of paintings, drawings, monotypes, and editioned works. A wide range of mediums is featured including oil, acrylic, watercolor, gouache, glitter, charcoal, colored pencil, graphite, and collage.
On view are works by Wayne Thiebaud, Sam Francis, Jim Dine, Robert Motherwell, Roy Lichtenstein, John Cage, Sam Messenger, Jean Dubuffet, David Hockney, Howard Hodgkin, Paul Jenkins, Ralph Goings, Robert Bechtle, John Salt, Charles Bell, Randy Dudley, Elizabeth Patterson, and John Baeder.
Important Works on Paper will be on exhibit through August 28, 2015.
