ALBERT LICHTEN

The Kaleidoscope of the Mind
April 24 – May 14, 2015
Reception: Thursday, April 30, 2015 6-8 PM

The painting heritage of Albert Lichten is complex; his influences are Fauvism, Cubism, and abstraction. He feels close to Matisse, but his main approach is a personal resumption of the Cubist discovery of multidimensionality. Thus the little characters which are represented in his different canvases are remote, but at the same time the canvas structure suggests the feeling they have of the surrounding landscape. It is a subjective-objective synthesis. It results in an emotional climate. The remoteness of his subjects is so pronounced, in fact, that the surrounding landscape becomes a kind of second character: a looming Mother Earth that cradles her children closely. Lichten’s palette leans on the contrast between muted and vivid colors. He occasionally mixed his colors with sand, a technique that provides added textural dimension.

The predominant themes in Lichten’s work are poetical, mythical, and religious, which he considers to be humankind’s “common heritage.” His work also tackles historical and anthropological themes such as the problems experienced by couples and victims, and serves as a greater examination of the various malaises of contemporary life. Lichten’s paintings are expressions of himself, but not his ego. They are, at their core, a means of exploring the human condition.
