Bernard Langlais: Abstractions and Reliefs
March 4, 2007 - July 1, 2007
Upper Jette Galleries
While working in New York in the late 1950s and early 1960s, Maine-born artist Bernard Langlais (1921-1977) began to explore the medium of wood relief. Using found wooden objects and scraps, Langlais developed a unique style of “painting with wood,” creating complex works that are as viscerally stirring as they are familiar and mundane. This exhibition presents 24 of these evocative, early wood reliefs.
