Colossal Heads II, 1960 (detail)

Description


Leon Golub will exhibit two series at the Feldman Gallery: Graeco-Roman Colossi, large-scale coruscated lacquer paintings from 1959 – 1964, and Erotica, etc., recent 8” x 10” drawings/paintings on vellum and board. The Colossi are hunks of physicality, a Graeco-Roman “idea” thrown into the modern mix of the 1960’s! Raw, relentless, eroded, they ride on cultural memory. Erotica etc., 2000 – 2003 explores, on a small scale, various interludes of the erotic. The disparity in scale between the two series is enormous; the psychic distance between the two is perhaps enormous? The artist poses the question as to how the two series contend with each other and whether they can infer the other’s reality?
