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.

Neil Wel­liver, Dark Ca­noe, 1966, oil on can­vas, 50 x 72 inches
