Opening Reception: Friday August 10 from 6-9

For Kerry Law, the Empire State Building is an icon of continual fascination and mystery. For years he painted the image during the daytime, often with a view through trees. He traveled throughout the boroughs looking for interesting vantage points. From his present aerie in Ridgewood, just over the Bushwick border, he has finally arrived at the perfect vantage point from which to survey and paint his subject.

He writes, “I have been working on this series for the last couple of years. Each painting is made in one evening from direct observation alla prima. I love the fact that I can paint the same thing every night, and every night it is different. Every night is the same, every night is different. The colors of the building lights change frequently. In addition, the weather and the color of night are never the same. In fact, they are constantly changing. I look for opportunities to take subtle formal variations. I am interested in how the simple yet, infinite formal variations create a dialogue with non-objective painting. Lately, I have been photographing the finished painting and posting it instantly on Facebook, sharing my experience of this New York icon in real time with friends around the globe.”
