Landscape Paintings by Timothy Arzt at Fischback Gallery
NEW YORK CITY – The Fischbach Gallery presents recent landscape paintings by Timothy Arzt, October 5 to 28. This is the artist’s first solo show at the gallery.
Arzt’s minutely detailed landscape paintings recall the Northern European tradition, juxtaposing a heightened sense of realism and romantic sense of foreboding. The artist concentrates on scenes from nature, such as ponds and woodlands, in his small-scale paintings.
Keeping the figural element to a bare minimum, there is a feeling of “something other” in Arzt’s paintings: the northern Renaissance landscape painters chose their subject matter with a belief in its transcendental nature.
The Fischbach Gallery is at 24 West 57th Street. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 5:30 pm. Telephone, 212/759-2345.
