Bowery Gallery is pleased to present John Goodrich’s ninth exhibition of paintings with the gallery.   This exciting exhibit features the artist’s most recent paintings and includes more than twenty landscapes and still lifes.  It runs JANUARY 3 – 28, 2017

Goodrich’s paintings are enlivened by incisive brushwork and intense, modulated colors.

An avid admirer of such masters as Titian, Corot and Matisse, the artist seeks to illuminate his subjects through lyrical compositions. Goodrich states: “Painting for me is a visual experience, in the same way that music, for a musician, is an aural one. In any painting, color imparts more than style and atmosphere; it gives weight to movement. I hope to locate the character of my motifs – that is, to give them a pictorial presence – through a rhythmic language of form”.

Several landscapes in the show represent Goodrich’s recent painting trips to Cranberry Island in Maine and to Telluride, Colorado where he taught a painting workshop this summer.

 The exhibit, also, includes Goodrich’s large, colorful interpretations of four tiny landscape etchings by Rembrandt. These interpretations recreate, with a full palette and at a far larger scale, scenes that inspired the Dutch master in his walks about Amsterdam over 350 years ago.

  1. Quick question to you: I notice that the talk is printed as starting at 4pm on the postcard and 3pm on this blog. Perhaps, John, you wish to clarify?
