Press Release


CRG is pleased to announce our next exhibition will be new paintings by New York artist, Robert Feintuch. For his second solo exhibition at CRG, the artist will present eight paintings. After ten years working exclusively in black and white, Feintuch’s new works are all in luminous color. The exhibition at CRG will include paintings of objects and two life-sized nude self-portraits. Feintuch uses objects like clocks, coins and buckets for their metaphorical life and their associations with language. These same objects move in and out of the figure paintings. The portraits of the artist, who stands with his back turned toward the viewer, imply narratives, but they are incongruous about exactly what and where things are happening. These paintings are psychologically (and often, psychosexually) suggestive, and they are restrained, exposed, comic and serious all at once. Four paintings will travel from CRG to the museum exhibition, “Figurative Malerei-Außenseiter oder Trend?”curated by Professor Peter Weiermair and Dr. Andreas Hapkemeyer, which will commence in Kraichtal, Germany and travel to Salzburg, Austria and Bolzano, Italy (catalogue forthcoming). This exhibition makes an historical context for contemporary figurative painting by juxtaposing three generations of artists including Balthus, Lucian Freud, Alex Katz, Chuck Close, David Hockney, Eric Fischl, Marlene Dumas, Robert Feintuch and Elizabeth Peyton. Visual material is available upon request. Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 11 – 6 PM For further information please contact: Carla Chammas, Richard Desroche or Glenn McMillan
