Abstract:

At eighty-eight years old, Wolf Kahn shares his time between his New York and Vermont studios. Painting daily, his greatest tools continue to be memory, imagination, and color. Confident and fantastic, every work is a celebration of art and life. In recent years, Kahn says that he has focused on making paintings less precise, which allows him to be more inventive. His striking depictions of barns, rivers, meadows, and woods appear representational yet abstract and his signature palette still prevails - alizarin crimson, thalo green, and dioxazine purple. Though, black, white, and yellow have found a bigger presence as Kahn uses these colors to explore density and texture in each work. Color, containing its own emotive language, is a tool he uses to achieve a poetic harmony within each canvas. When John Seed once asked who influenced his color development, Kahn noted only Titian and Rembrandt. But it is impossible to ignore, as Bill Agee cites in the publication for this exhibition, "Lawrence Campbell was surely right when he commented that the radiance of color in Kahn's art could be compared only with that of Matisse and Rothko. There is no doubt that Wolf Kahn is a painter who embodies a synthesis of artistic traits - including the modern abstract training of Hans Hofmann, the palette of Bonnard, Rothko's sweeping bands of color, and the atmospheric qualities of American Impressionism. Kahn's fusion of color, spontaneity, and representation has produced a rich and expressive body of work.
