Stewart Goldman, Splat (detail), 2010, Oil on linen | Image Courtesy of the Artist
Throughout a career that spans over 45 years, Stewart Goldman’s paintings have depicted the artist’s unique perspectives: riffs on Ruben, painstakingly detailed and atmospheric interiors, or colorfully abstract and bucolic natural settings. Some of these images come from Goldman’s world travels and others are of his home, devoid of its furnishings. Mythic Macrocosm displays a combination of the artist’s natural abstractions from the early 2000s and a selection of his more recent series of abstract paintings, based off of observed landscapes in New Zealand, Sicily, and Capri.

In Cosmology in Flux, Dutch painter, Jacco Olivier illustrates the vivacity of painting and his ability to realize his subject matter in rich animation. The artist paints, photographs, and collages his abstract and figurative images to create fluid paintings and narratives. This exhibition will display two of Olivier’s signature works Landscape and Revolution, both from 2010. While the works show disparate environments, they also allude to the idea that these ecosystems are constantly in flux, whether we are aware of it or not.
