Cityscapes by Ben Aronson

May 04, 2013 - June 30, 2013
Boone and George-Ann Knox Gallery II

Perhaps best known today for depictions of men on Wall Street, Ben Aronson also creates eloquently expressive cityscapes. From the collection of GMOA and the artist, this exhibition showcases 18 works by Aronson and includes a mix of architectural and pedestrian scenes that capture the energy of rapid urban life in a painterly manner. Aronson’s stylistic influences come from artists like Richard Diebenkorn, Willem de Kooning and Jack Levine. Through his depictions of “urban currents,” he contemplates the interplay of light and dark and the movement of a fleeting glance or a fixed personal memory.
