Installation view of works by Karen Schifano
November 2 — December 22, 2007
Tobey Fine Arts is presents the second exhibition of works by the international group of artists calling themselves the Verus Painters, whom are John Aslanidis, Susann Brännström, Peter Köhler, Karen Schifano and Lorraine Williams.
The Verus Painters are the new generation of painters working with a wealth of painterly history and ideas accumulated over the last century. They approach painting as a laboratory where experiments are conducted. What has brought these artists together is their shared commitment to the veracity in painting. The most important question in their endeavor is the evolution of the individual producing it. Thus their approach to painting is in emphasizing its deepest, most subtle qualities, while trying to strip away everything that is unessential.
