David Lefkowitz October 2nd at 5:00 pm - David Lefkowitz ‘s paintings, installation, and mixed-media assemblages address paradoxes of perception both monumental and mundane. His work explores the blurry boundaries between mediated and direct experience, often centered on perceived tensions between the human-built environment and the natural world and combining Western traditions of representational oil painting with the flotsam and jetsam of consumer culture to draw attention to the complex relations between image and object, past and present, and nature and culture. Recent solo exhibitions have been held at Carleton College, the Soo Visual Arts Center in Minneapolis, the Northfield Arts Guild, and the Rochester Art Center. Lefkowitz is represented by the Carrie Secrist Gallery in Chicago and is a Professor of Art at Carleton College in Northfield, MN where he teaches painting, drawing, and Critical Issues in Contemporary Art.
