HUDSON — Pamela Salisbury Gallery is proud to present Graham Nickson: Passages, an exhibition of new watercolors from 2020 and 2021 and a selection of landscapes in oil painted in the 1970s in Rome. Art historian Kathryn Kremnizter writes: “Done decades apart, the premise sustained from the small paintings through the large watercolors attests to Nickson’s power of perception and persistent commitment to color. To witness his practice, in response to the material affordances and constraints of each medium, is to recognize a sincere devotion to looking and seizing the most profound image, even if it only ever existed for a moment.”
The exhibition is accompanied by a 64-page, fully illustrated catalogue with an essay by Kremnizter,
PhD, Research Associate at the Art Institute of Chicago.
