Closes: December 4th, 2013
"I believe painting must be both a distillation and an invention. The source continues to be earth and sky, growth and the seasons; but there continue to be new ways of seeing and thinking about these things."
Over his lifetime, Paul Horiuchi (1906-1999) has given us images of originality and beauty. He matured as an artist in the company of Mark Tobey, Guy Anderson, Kenneth Callahan to name a few. Many have acknowledged Horiuchi as a 'world master of contemporary collage'. He sought to capture nature; inspired by weathered notices posted on street corners in the International District. Horiuchi realized their beauty.
This special exhibition of rare works from the late 1920’s and a selection of his signature style collage paintings is a celebration of Paul Horiuchi's accomplishments as one of the significant American Artists of the 20th century.
