MILES McENERY GALLERY presents an exhibition by Wolf Kahn, The Last Decade: 2010 - 2020.

Looking at paintings from the final decade of Wolf Kahn’s life, it is easy to find an aesthetic pleasure that makes it effortless to focus on the relations of color and form. While these relationships are carefully ordered, for Kahn they are never merely restful. The paintings’ vivid color palettes are engaged by the experiences and sensations of the natural world. Kahn’s landscapes are also connected to a social imagination. “I want people to participate freely in my paintings…to connect my paintings as directly as possible to their surroundings,” he explained in a 1988 interview.

Alex J. Taylor remarks, “Kahn’s paintings reveal forceful archetypes of the American landscape in its neglected corners, quiet tributes to the untold stories of unseen occupants, past and present. In so doing, his paintings remind us of our own manifold connections to the land—even those of us for whom it is seen mainly from the window of a car or a train, or indeed on the wall of a Manhattan gallery.”
