Delve into the introspective works of contemporary figurative painter, Robert Fundis.
On view September 15 – February 10, 2019.
Fall, Sears Harkness gallery will be home to another astonishing exhibition filled with introspective pieces focusing on the human condition. Become absorbed in the paintings on display in Robert Fundis: Old and New.
Robert Fundis’ huge painted works investigate space and solitude, allowing the viewer to be completely engulfed in the exploration of the places and figures he portrays.
“Individually we develop our own language, our own personal relationship with the paint through the process and the experience of interacting with the material,” Fundis says. “It is magical. It is painful. It is seductive. It is still alchemic in some ways; smelling it, feeling it, and suffering through extremely present moments with it in the studio to arrive at places of harmonious discovery.”
The people within these huge works speak through the very first language–body language. When browsing these pieces, stop to reflect on each one, giving it its own time to reflect a memory, a thought, a sound, a feeling to you.
Robert Fundis: Old and New will be on display in September.
Support for this exhibition is provided by the general operations support grants from the United Cultural Fund, a program of the Broome County Arts Council; the Conrad and Virginia Klee Foundation; the Zoos, Botanical Gardens and Aquariums Program, administered by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreational, and Historical Preservation; and the New York State Council for the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M.
