Mid-Year Exhibition at the National Academy
My painting "Elliott 2" (acrylic on canvas, 30 x 40 inches) will be exhibited at the National Academy of Design through February 2, 2016.
The portrait combines grisaille and color applied in the expressionist manner, partly inspired by these paintings by Willem de Kooning, Frank Auerbach and Paul Wright.
The model Elliott Ortiz is a Venezuelan dancer and choreographer who is a resident artist at Art Space PS109, in New York City.
I hope that you can attend the opening reception tonight from 6:00-8:00 pm, or otherwise see the show if you are in the upper east side of Manhattan.
