Dan Christensen
Dan Christensen:
Atmospherics
| May 8 – June 21
With work in virtually every leading American museum and innumerable important private collections, Dan Christensen (1942-2007) is widely recognized as one of America’s foremost color abstractionists. A new exhibition at LewAllen Galleries will include more than 20 major paintings – many of them classics in the history of American Abstraction and of museum caliber – from Christensen’s celebrated “spray” and “plaid” series. They vividly illustrate Christensen’s extraordinary capacity to coalesce onto canvas layers of paint, arrays of color, well-placed line, and exciting juxtapositions of shapes that together comprised his unique visual vocabulary that made works as immediate and sensate for the viewer as they were for him.
