2015 Masters Preview: Kipness

Each Monday in September (and early October), we will be announcing another artist from our upcoming Masters Exhibit and revealing one of their works that will be present in the gallery during the exhibit. The exhibit will be comprised of six artists who have greatly impacted the development of contemporary art and are collected in museums worldwide. We are pleased to announce that works from these influential artists will be viewable at Sager Reeves Gallery for the entire month of December. In addition, these works can be purchased during the December exhibit, or by private preview arranged prior to December.

The stark and moody drawings and graphic works of Robert Kipniss (b. 1931) are eagerly collected and exhibited by both public and private art enthusiasts around the world. “If someone looks at my paintings and sees only trees and houses, then they don’t see what I’m doing,” Kipniss has said. “I may be painting trees and houses but when I look at them, that’s not what I see. I see an atmosphere, a moment, a quickly passing experience that I’m trying to capture. My art is of intensity, of delving, of exploring the soul.”
