CORNELIA FOSS: Recent Work
Quintessential Hamptons artist Cornelia Foss has been painting for over half a century, as is evident by her sure hand and elegant use of color. Renowned for her fresh and personal vision, Foss's work interplays intense emotion within the formal constraints of design and painting.
Art critic and curator Karen Wilkin writes, “In Foss's straightforward, keenly observed canvases, ephemeral, unreturning, apparently inconsequential moments are distilled and endlessly prolonged. Distanced by translation into the language of paint and painting, these fleeting glimpses of places dear to the artist are magically preserved.”
Foss paints what she sees, the beaches and landscapes of the Hamptons, the garden of her Long Island home, views of Central Park. Deeply personal and full of light, her paintings invite the viewer to share in her vision. Whether a monumental canvas or a smaller watercolor sketch, her paintings are like windows beckoning us into a world of riotous flower gardens, expansive landscapes and expressive skies. The exhibition comprises all new work from Ms. Foss.
