Well-known New York painter Brian Rutenberg's bold chromatically intense oil paintings are on display at LewAllen Galleries in a show entitled Clear Seeing Place. For more than 30 years, the artist's response to the natural world has melded together the seen and the imagined. Inspired by a profound personal connection with the beauty of landscape, Rutenberg extracts its structures, supports, colors and fields, and reassembles them into a unique architecture of place and its experience. His vibrant, painterly abstractions are singular in that they push beyond charm and colorful loveliness; they instead assert themselves with a distinctive muscularity that vividly echoes the grandeur of the American land.
