Joseph Drapell

The artist used to paint in his messed-up corduroy pants and got the idea to paint several works on corduroy (one is included in this exhibition). Later he cut notches in his spreading devices. He was able to explore the depth and densities of paint layers, which translated into a rich territory of transparencies and opacities, increasing the feeling-content of his work.

This exhibition covers the evolution of the STRIATIONS period, from 1983 to the present. Drapell found a flexible vehicle for his abstraction that in the course of four decades morphed into new versions of his abstraction/depiction. The works in this exhibition are not for sale.
