Painter Gary Lang has enjoyed a celebrated career worthy of his keen talent. Free of the burden of conceptual angst that plagues most artists of our era, he penetrates optical space in his large circular paintings that defy the nihilism of both Duchamp’s mechanical spinning wheels and Jasper Johns’ targets. Far from mechanized, these are exercises in concentration and close inspection sees an ever-present hand in the almost precise brushstrokes.

A separate body of work unlocks the poetry of language within the aesthetics of text. In today’s specialized art world this is fodder for two separate artists, but Lang is unabashedly a poet and painter.

The exhibit will be on display through December 22.
