"Cinnabar" 2015 (Oil on linen, 70 x 70 in / 178 x 178 cm)

"Seeking to articulate notions of time and space ... viewer accesses the painting while being kept on edge by events occurring within; the original perception by body and mind, a starting point on a journey into the painting." Paul Pagk

Upcoming exhibition:

  • CONSTRUCTED” is the Oct-Nov exhibition at Contemporary Art Galleries (CAG), University of Connecticut - October 14 - November 29, 2019

    Group show featuring Beverly Fishman, Marilyn Lerner, Paul Pagk, Joanna Pousette-Dart and Cary Smith

    Curated by Barry Rosenberg, Director of CAG

    Artists Reception and Dialogue: October 17 @ 5pm (click here)

    “Since the turn of this century, figuration and narrative painting have been dominating the discipline’s cutting-edge trends. Today influential art periodicals are overflowing with images, reviews and stories concerning figurative painters, and it is predominantly this type of art that is being marketed at leading commercial galleries and showcased at museums around the world.

    The 2019 Whitney Biennale confirmed a strong preference by the museum’s curatorial team towards figurative and politically narrative works. However, it does appear that a counterrevolution featuring new tactics of abstraction is bubbling to the surface. Abstraction never took the ten-count.

    CONSTRUCTED demonstrates geometric abstraction is reaching new heights in the 21st century. It isn’t a redo of 20th century Modernism nor late-1980s Neo-Geo Conceptualism, but rather draws inspiration from the broader history of abstract painting and these artists personal and timely experiences. 

    All five painters are today considered mid-career. What’s to be appreciate is that their art remains fresh deep into their careers and that they are today being reevaluated in light of abstract painting’s resurgence.”

    Barry A. Rosenberg
