Essay by Robert Rosenblum (Professor of Fine Arts, New York University)
This catalogue was published by the Frye Art Museum in conjunction with its exhibition Lisa Zwerling: Primitive Mysteries (March 10–May 7, 2000), a part of the Frye’s Viewpoints series, which is devoted to the work of contemporary artists who are redefining the concepts of representation and content in modern painting.
Zwerling’s presiding themes are of the sublime and the overwhelming power of nature. Her paintings convey the contrast between serene natural beauty and agonized destruction. Zwerling’s work is reminiscent of Old Master landscape painting, but is also imbued with mythological themes.
This publication includes an essay by Robert Rosenblum, full color illustrations of the exhibition artworks along with an artist’s biography, and exhibition checklist.
