    Kent Williams has built up a formidable reputation as a powerful contemporary painter. His is a bold realism with combined attributes of abstraction and neo-expressionistic sensibilities. His work is characterized by strong gestural forms combined with areas of arresting detail, rendered with rich dynamic brushwork.

    Williams’ approach to his subjects is often subjective and intense. Whether through multi-figured compositional complexity and suggestive narrative, or with the straight-forward lone human form, there is often autobiographical narrative at play. Favorite models, friends, and the artist himself all play a role in the human story of his paintings.

    Beyond Earth Stephen Di Donato

    "After recently finding old science fiction magazines dating back from the 1980’s, it reignited my childhood memories of my curiosity of our solar system and of limitless imagination. I began researching heavily on NASA missions and came to the realization that the late 1950’s to mid-1970’s were exciting times for new discoveries, for real photographic images of planets and for limitless possibilities. This gave me the incentive to start a personal project named Beyond Earth."

    Linda Alterwitz - While I am Still (2009-)

    "Alterwitz’s photographic series While I am Still challenges the viewer to explore a disquieting escape of the mind amidst the physical body’s subjugation of testing inside a medical imaging machine.

    In these photographs, Alterwitz weaves together images of the human body derived from medical PET scans with landscapes and with images of fabrics, revealing ethereal figures in a raw and vulnerable state. The mind, wrestling with sadness, fear, and hope, retreats to a safe refuge. Alterwitz brings insight and awareness to the struggle and the resulting withdrawal of the inner mind. What remains is the unearthed soul desperately searching for a place of sanctuary.”

    Artist’s statement: 

    "As this project is ongoing, I am seeking donations of medical images to repurpose in my artwork. Although medical testing often originates from accident or illness, I feel that the work from the series can aid the process of healing, whether by understanding what lies beneath the surface of our bodies, or having the strength to confront one’s fears."

  9. "You want me to be a tragic backdrop so that you can appear to be illuminated, so that people can say ‘Wow, isn’t he so terribly brave to love a girl who is so obviously sad?’ You think I’ll be the dark sky so you can be the star? I’ll swallow you whole."

    Curator’s Monday 148

    Dirk Bach (b.1939, USA)

    After enrolling in a drawing class, Dirk Bach discovered a strong interest in creating images and decided to pursue studies in the visual arts. He obtained a BFA from University of Denver in 1961 and an MA in painting in 1962. He has served as professor at the University of New Hampshire art department and the Rhode Island School of Design, where he taught drawing, painting, design, printmaking and art and architectural histories of Japan, China, India, and contemporary America. His own studio work focused firstly on landscape mandalas inspired by a National Endowment to the Humanities grant for travel to temples in Nara and Kyoto, Japan, and on Buddhist “Pure Land” diagrams based on imagery in the Lotus Sutra and Heart Sutra. These works led to several exhibitions and speaking engagements. His recent drawings of wooden boats in grassy fields reflect both his continued interest in far eastern art and his celebration of renewed personal vitality as a cancer survivor. Dirk Bach lives and works in New York with the artist Kay WalkingStick. Our sincere thanks to darksilenceinsuburbia for this Curator’s Monday.
