Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present More or Less, Stephen Pentak’s eighth solo show with the gallery.
Stephen Pentak‘s landscapes are variations on iconic themes. The scenes he paints from memory are familiar like a favorite bend in a river from childhood, and relish in how light affects nature. They appear tranquil and pristine from afar. Yet, as you step closer the evidence of his untraditional tools appear. His sweeping broad strokes of individual color are revealed, and one realizes that Pentak leans far more toward abstraction than originally perceived.
