PRESS RELEASE | Multi-talented American artist Norman Sunshine will exhibit recent, cutting-edge landscape paintings and highly expressive pastels of horses at The Morrison Gallery September 25 through October 24. In addition to the current work, gallery owner William Morrison has selected a number of earlier pieces from Sunshine’s years in Los Angeles.

“The range of work and exploration of media will add up to a mini retrospective,” said Mr. Morrison. The show will take the viewer on a surprising journey: one that will reflect emotional experiences and surroundings that affected the artist’s outlook on life as well as his art – and transformed them into the realm of color, form and space. From hard-edge, cool, realistic figurative paintings of alienation of the 70’s, to emotionally charged and more abstract paintings, sculpture and steel wall reliefs of the 80’s, and finally, when Sunshine decided to move to the east and settle permanently in Washington, Connecticut, how the sights, colors and impressions, affected and radically changed his work.

Sunshine’s critically acclaimed postmodern still-life apple paintings and sculptures of the 1990’s were shown frequently in New York and in his last exhibit at the Morrison Gallery.  As with his still-life paintings, the newer landscape paintings also toss convention on its ear, lifting the wall between abstraction and representation. The exhibit will take the viewer on a surprising journey, of place, inspiration, daring and transformation.  Sunshine’s work is in national museums and in some of the most important private and corporate collections in the country.

The show begins with an Opening Reception on Saturday, September 25, 5-7 pm.
