Wolf Kahn
Starting October 12th through November 30th, the gallery will show 16 original Wolf Kahn pastels on paper, dating from the 1950s to present day. The pieces featured are from the private collection of art enthusiast and a longtime acquaintance of the artist. The work exhibits the collector and friend's, true appreciation for Kahn’s deft feel for color at its most vibrant, and often, unexpected. As a result, the show represents a capsule collection of the rarest Kahn’s, spanning the past half-of-a-century. The collection of these unique pastels speaks visual volumes as to why the artist, Wolf Kahn, is hailed as “America’s Greatest Colorist.”Wolf Kahn - the master of light, expressive color and harmonious subtlety has changed “the game” of traditional landscapes for past, current, and future generations. For some of his work, he handwrote his artistic viewpoint, detailing the process and inspiration of its fruition. Kahn’s work exonerates itself from the expectations of the traditional American landscape. It allows viewers to escape in his abstraction, yet recognizable, place of their own mind and imagination. In addition to the masterful artist's hand, it is perhaps this ineffable quality that allows the work to transcend and appeal across time. As the artist once expressed in regards to his subject, “I help nature take its course.”
