BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – On September 21 Noel Fine Art, 80 Kraft Avenue, will open an exhibition of the work of Hank Virgona. The exhibition will continue until October 19.
Virgona is especially adept in his depiction of female sensuality, working with the watercolor medium for the last 45 years. In line, color and tone he captures some of the many singular facets of these women.
Virgona was influenced by the WPA/Expressionist tradition as demonstrated by Joseph Solman, Jason Berger and Karl Zerbe, but not part of it. Rather he developed a personal vocabulary and vision of his own. Like a latter-day Giorgio Morandi, Virgona uses a similar focus time and again to describe the light, line and volume in all of his figure studies, restricting himself to a narrow chromatic range to make icon-like portraits.
