Duane Reed: Friday, 29 January 2016

BARRY LEIBMAN: Imaginary Gardens, A Collection of Recent Works
January 29th through March 5th
Opening Reception Friday, January 29th from 5-8 p.m.

Leibman’s images act as a visual translation from the language of music or written word, evoking the synesthetic qualities existent within the work. The subject matter of his paintings includes passages from novels and musical compositions.“These current paintings continue my on-going interest in musicians and composers. Previous solo exhibitions have concentrated on Mozart, Erik Satie, Hand-Made American Music, Charlie Parker, and Gustav Mahler. These new paintings depict “imaginary gardens” of various composers ranging from Beethoven to Ornette Coleman, Thelonious Monk to Vivaldi, Dmitri Shostakovich to John Cage. The “garden” elements are sometimes abstracted, sometimes observed from above, sometimes at night, sometimes only as a single element. They are, after all, “imaginary,” not representations of real gardens. I do think, however, that the music and the personality of each composer can be discerned in the paintings.” - Barry Leibman

Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10 - 5pm.
