GREENBERG

Mystery as Muse
October 13 – November 2, 2018
Reception: Thursday, October 18, 2018 6-8 PM

Tackling the dark recesses of horror and perception, Larry Greenberg's evocative paintings and drawings present a volatile, yet cathartic, look into humanity. While taking cues from the emotive figures of Picasso's Blue Period, Greenberg turns his work towards more surrealistic environs, playing with anatomy to illustrate moments of tension and drama. In the same vein, his figures retain a hint of understated theatricality; often their features are reduced to only shells and skins.

For paintings and drawings that speak toward humanity's internal demons and emotional intensity, there is a sense of delicacy in Greenberg's work. From the use of muted colors, washed out textures, lines and brushwork, a softness contrasts his weighty thematic images. This lends itself to the ethereal quality in his works. The subjects in these paintings and drawings are always at risk of disappearing into the background, an effect that emphasizes the struggle against vanishing beneath internal turmoil.
