Robert Kushners work from a previous show at DC Moore

I love Robert’s work because it is a wonderful representation of Feng Shui in art: the beautiful way he paints nature, the saturated colors, and the use of gold leaf (a great “metal” element and Feng Shui remedy to protect health).

From the DC Moore press release:

 “In his heroically large-scale paintings, Kushner combines organic representational elements with flat, geometric grounds of solid or textured color. In doing so, he acknowledges a unique range of influences, including Islamic and European decorative arts, Chinese and Japanese sumi-e ink painting, and American abstract painting. Kushner’s multimedia works on paper are composed atop antique texts from a variety of sources with hand-painted flowers, gold leaf additions, and found vintage photographs. In both his paintings and painted collages, Kushner unites art historical tradition with modernism and aesthetic pleasure with intellectual rigor.”

 You might also know Robert’s work if you take the 6 Train – check out his large mosaic piece at the 77th Street stop:

Robert is a great friend and a gifted artist, I hope you get a chance to see his work!
