The Glass House Julian Schnabel

06/08/2017 to 07/10/2017

199 Elm Street, New Canaan, CT Phone: 203.594.9884 .

The Glass House proudly presents Julian Schnabel: "Paintings that I hope Philip and David would like," an intimate survey showcasing Julian Schnabel's prolific painting career. Over the course of the exhibition period, the Painting Gallery panels will rotate three times to present paintings selected by the artist. Each rotation will feature six works from different periods of the artist's career. The second rotation, Paintings after 2000, on view from June 8th to July 10th, feature works from the artist's collection from different series: Nothing Paintings, Weather Paintings and Landscape Paintings. The Nothing Paintings were made on images printed on polyester. The Landscape Paintings were made on found materials bought in Mexico. Reminiscent of aerial photography, the Weather Paintings are mysterious images photographically printed as an aerial view of the land, creating a disorienting sense of sight so that the viewer feels suspended above rather than being on the ground.
