Athos Zacharias: The Late Work
May 1 – October 31, 2020
Always the iconoclast, Athos Zacharias sought to resolve the dichotomy that arose in American art in the 1960s. “I loved Pop art,” he said, “so I wanted to find a way to swoosh it together with Abstract Expressionism.” In his late work, painted in the studio he began building in 1962 on Copeces Lane in The Springs, action painting takes the leading role, though elements of pop-culture imagery make cameo appearances. The works are lent by the artist’s estate. Download the exhibition brochure »
