Gallery North is pleased to present East End, an exhibition which showcases the exuberant and colorful work of Bruce Lieberman. Fully immersed in the Long Island experience, Lieberman captures the rhythm and textures of both land and sea.
East End, an in-depth look at life on Long Island, reveals the relationship of Lieberman’s daily life to his paintings. Autobiographical in nature, his work tells a story through vibrant colors and broad brushstrokes. His house and garden, nearby ocean, and everyday items fill the canvas.
Common to all Lieberman’s paintings is the human element. Each gesture or mark is made apparent to the viewer, intentional and understood as the hand of the artist. Lieberman’s journey is stored within the build up of paint, the inclusion of charcoal and even the salt water that splashed the surface.
A marrying of the plein air experience and the studio experience, East End includes all that is Long Island. Through all over compositions, the action painting of Bruce Lieberman does not merely depict life but evokes the sensations of Long Island living.
Lieberman began exhibiting in the 1980s and has continued to show his work on a regular basis in New York City and Long Island. East End is his first comprehensive solo show at Gallery North.
ArTalk with Franklin Perrell, former chief curator at the Nassau Country Museum of Art. Sunday, October 26, 3-5pm. Generously sponsored by Alice Elman.
