“New Paintings” is an extension of Hamilton’s personal pursuit of contemporary landscape painting. In these works on canvas and panel the landscape subject provides a basis for exploring the expressive qualities of paint, creating a tension of visual experience as the eye vacillates between pictorial and abstract observation. Completed in the past year, the varied works in the exhibition relate to sites in Wyoming, Colorado, and the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico.
Exhibit 208 will reopen with a three day presentation of “Valley of the Muse” an eleven section panorama by Russell Hamilton. This work has been shown in 2006 at our previous location but the 20″x16″ paintings have been unframed until now.
