Marcus Reichert

Marcus Reichert is having an exhibition at the Adelson Galleries Boston - opening this Friday, June 19th and running through August 2nd.

Marcus has been a good friend since 1966 when we were freshman students at R.I.S.D., and I've written about his paintings before on this blog. He's always worked with integrity and passion, and I find his paintings have the wonderful quality of being simultaneously simple and complex - something that I believe is a fundamental found in life and nature, and by extension a fundamental quality shared by all great art, whether abstract or figurative.

For a number of years now, Marcus and his wife, Sally, have lived in the south of France and perhaps its warmth and sunlight have influenced this series of poetic and lyrical flower paintings. I hope my readers in the Boston area will take the time to see this exhibition.
