Perhaps best known today for depictions of men on Wall Street, American contemporary artist Ben Aronson also creates eloquently expressive cityscapes. This exhibition includes a mix of architectural and pedestrian scenes that capture the energy of rapid urban life in a painterly manner.
Aronson, an American figurative painter, captures fleeting moments and personal memories in his depictions of city life. His paintings feature interplay between light and dark colors, highlighting movement and energy in the compositions.
Aronson received his master of fine arts degree in painting from Boston University in 1982. He has received numerous awards throughout his career and has exhibited his works of art nationally and internationally. His expressive style was influenced by abstract artists in the Boston Expressionist School and Bay Area School such as Richard Diebenkorn, Willem de Kooning, Jack Levine, Franz Kline and his father, David Aronson.
This exhibition was previously organized by and exhibited at the Georgia Museum of Art.
