Leon Golub

The Blue Tattoo

Description


Leon Golub will show new paintings at the Feldman Gallery in an exhibition entitled Dead Certainties + The Blue Tattoo. Born in 1922, Leon Golub is one of the world’s leading postwar painters. His work was last seen in New York in 1996 at the Feldman Gallery and the New York Kunsthalle. In Dead Certainties + The Blue Tattoo, Prometheus questions his actions – a little late unfortunately; a fatigued lioness questions why things have to be the way they are, and various other questions are evoked. Golub has traveled a distance from the confrontational Mercenaries and Interrogations of the 1980’s. But one recognizes fierce asymmetric slants on power and vulnerability.
