CONDITION - Excellent Condition ARTIST'S BIO -Richard Karwoski (1938 - 1993)Since 1963, Mr. Karwoski had over 40 solo exhibitions andparticipated in over 500 group shows throughout the United Statesand Canada. He received innumerable awards, and wrote a book"Watercolors Bright and Beautiful". His work with watercolorfurthered the medium, which he felt could make as strong astatement as oil. His art has been the subject of articles andreviews in publications such as The New York Times, Woman's WearDaily, Arts Magazine, American Artist, and Artspeak.Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1938, he died February 1993. Hestudied with Richard Lindner (1901-1970) at Pratt Institute, NY andin 1963 received a Masters of Art from Columbia University. He wasa professor of Art at the New York City Technical College of CityUniversity.Mr. Karwoski generally worked on one image and one series at a timeuntil he exhausted all possibilities and challenges of thatsubject.Early paintings, drawings and collages (1960's) are figural,expressing the angst and wonderment of human form andrelationships, inspired by the German Expressionist Movement of the1920's and 30's. "Contemporary man is beset by hang-ups, and thisis the statement that I am making", he said. His paintings andthemes are just as relevant today as they were in the 1960's.In 1978 he moved to flower, fruit, market and bay watercolors,oils, collages and prints inspired by his home and studiosurroundings in East Hampton, NY. His bold and beautiful use ofwatercolors inspired his book "Watercolors Bright and Beautiful" in1988. Mixed perspectives, dramatic lighting and theme, bold colors,and an absence of gravity while combining believable objects withunnatural space made Mr. Karwoski's paintings alive with movementand vibrancy.Mr.Karwoski continued to paint and discover until his untimelydeath in 1993. He has left behind a legacy of important andbeautiful works of art as well as a generation of art students thatcontinue his ideals and principals.His works are in many museum collections, including Museum ofModern Art, The Whitney Museum, Newark Museum, Detroit Institute ofArt, Portland Museum of Fine Art, Hecksher Museum, Tennessee FineArt Center, The Portland Museum of Art (Maine), Oklahoma ArtCenter, and the Arkansas Fine Art Center.
