Stanley Casselman

April 1 2013 – April 30 2014

"The focus of this exhibition will be on Casselman’s new body of work: Inhaling Richter, as indicated by the IR within the title of each painting. This body of work was inspired by a recent tongue-and-cheek challenge by American art critic Jerry Saltz of New York Magazine. After a work by the famous German painter Gerhard Richter sold at auction for an astounding $34.2 million dollars, Saltz challenged artists to produce a perfect Richterian style painting. Casselman met the challenge. The result is an inspired collection of Casselman originals that contain Richterian elements, yet maintain an aesthetic that is purely Casselman." - Scott White, Scott White Contemporary Art
