JUNE 26-OCTOBER 11, 1997
For more than three decades Peter Poskas has been painting the New England landscape. More specifically, his naturalistic painting reflects an intense investigation of the places he loves in Connecticut. An ardent student of Edward Hopper, he has been intent upon penetrating the unique character of his subjects. The transient light between sunset and nightfall seems to characterize Poskas’s sensibility as a painter. He revels in the evanescence of twilight, which he records superbly with his representational aesthetic. The suggestion implicit in his paintings is the longing that time might be made to stand still in such fleeting moments of nature’s transcendent splendor. This exhibition comes to us from the Schmidt Bingham Gallery in New York.
