This event has ended.

Paul Kolker presents his seventieth solo exhibition, About Atmosphere… Synthèse at the PAUL KOLKER Collection. Synthèse, based on the synthesis of man-made products, is Kolker’s process of painting or printing a translucent image over an underlying opaque one. Kolker curates this exhibition of his paintings and prints to study how the viewer perceives the mood of the artist’s experience evoked by the exhibition as a whole; and also through the viewer’s perception of each of the exhibition’s stand-alone works. Kolker calls this evoked mood, atmosphere.

Paul Kolker (b. 1935) is a New York based artist with doctorate degrees in medicine and law. He is Fellow American College of Surgeons, Fellow American College of Legal Medicine and Emeritus Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Northwell Glen Cove Hospital, having practiced cardiothoracic surgery on Long Island from 1969 to 2013. In October 2001 Kolker moved his Long Island studio to his current address in the Chelsea art district so that he could produce his works and curate his exhibitions as an experiment in perception. His studio and gallery have together become his laboratory in which the viewer is the measuring instrument for Kolker’s art as a perceptual experiment.
