Neil Welliver: On view through June 29th.
In the 1960s and 70s Neil Welliver (1929–2005) led a movement to redefine representational painting in a post-abstract expressionist, postminimal world. This exhibition surveys Welliver’s work and includes prime early figurative subjects along side his mature landscapes from the 1980s and 90s of the unspoiled wilderness, some of which measure 96 inches square. Included also are a selection of masterful ukiyo-e woodcut prints, which were part of Welliver’s practice throughout his career.
