From Jan 9th through Feb 11th, 2010.
Miriam Fernandes Gallery is presenting Charles DuBack and his extraordinary abstract and joyously colored work entitled “Translation of Nature” starting January 9th, 2010.
A respected American contemporary painter, his work has been featured in prominent exhibitions including “Recent Paintings” at the Museum of Modern Art NYC, “The Biennial International Exhibition” at the Brooklyn Museum, the “Whitney Annual Exhibition of Contemporary American Painting” and a recent solo exhibition at the Portland Museum of Art this past fall.
DuBack’s recognition amongst his contemporaries reflects his years of experience and great potential. His paintings are housed in many museum collections and other public institutions throughout the country.
The artist, a devoted modernist who in the 1950s shared a New York studio with Alex Katz and Bernard Langlais, was inspired by the earlier paintings of Matisse and Picasso, and was involved in the emerging abstract expressionism, color-field and Pop Art movements.
With his artist’s eye for defining shape with a bold simplicity of brush stroke, sensitivity to color and abstract realist sensibilities, he has excelled at translating that visual vocabulary understanding into works of art that convey the vibrancy and animation of nature.
“I let nature invade my mind with her variety of changing forms; these become the building blocks that I draw upon to create.” Charles DuBack.
