Peter Malone : Paintings

 July 29 – August 16, 2014

Reception:  Thursday July 31, 5-8 pm

Blue Mountain Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of paintings by Peter Malone, which will run from July 29 to August 16, 2014. An opening reception will be held Thursday July 31, from 5–8pm.

Included in the show are several drawings and a few still life pictures from the past ten years that demonstrate his affinity for light as a compelling property of all his work. However the greater part of the exhibition is dedicated to recent portraits from a series begun in 2011, a series the artist states is likely to occupy him for the foreseeable future. The portraits too rely on light, but their primary focus is the sitter’s encounter with the viewer. Each portrait represents a conscious effort by the artist to engage the viewer with the presence of another individual.

As the artist himself puts it, “The traditional role of the portrait artist was as a sort of public relations expert who portrayed the sitter in a predetermined context, usually one defined by official station or one that illustrated the sitter’s social position. I’m interested in the experience of the contemporary museum patrons who stand before portraits of individuals for which they have little knowledge and no familiarity, leaving both sitter and viewer with an artificial encounter, the strength of which relies on the artist’s success in convincing the viewer of the sitter’s presence and fundamental humanity.”
