Spanierman Gallery is pleased to announce the opening on February 23, 2012 of Impact, Movement, and Simplification: Paintings by Charles Green Shaw, 1960-70, an exhibition featuring the extraordinary group of paintings Shaw (1892-1974) created from 1966 through 1970 in which he returned to his hard-edge style of the 1930s, while drawing from the Minimalist art of the 1960s. Shaw described these works as “not rectangular, but angular . . . . in which I feel . . .I have the qualities I am after: impact, movement, and simplification, plus texture.” The show is accompanied by a brochure with an essay by Lisa N. Peters, Ph.D.
