“The ‘Torment’ of Painting and the Joy of Music” by Llyn Foulkes.

WHERE: The New Museum.

WHEN: On view through September 1, 2013.

TITLE: Llyn Foulkes

BRIEF ABOUT: Born November 17, 1934 in Yakima, Washington, Llyn Foulkes is an artist living and working in Los Angeles. This showing will mark the first at the New Museum as well as a New York museum exhibition of works by the artist (http://llynfoulkes.com) that will feature nearly one hundred works from the scope of his fifty-year career.

     The exhibit will consist of his emotionally charged constructions of the early 1960s and his impeccably painted landscapes of the American West, to his disturbing portraits from the late 1970s and his remarkable recent narrative tableaux, which seamlessly blend painting with found materials to create an extraordinary illusion of depth. His diverse body of work resists categorization and defies expectations, distinguishing Foulkes as a truly unique and significant artistic voice.

About: The New Museum began as an idea in the mind of founding Director Marcia Tucker. As a curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art from 1967 through 1976, Tucker observed firsthand that new work by living artists was not easily assimilated into the conventional exhibition and collection structure of the traditional art museum.

     Designed by Tokyo-based architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa/SANAA, is a seven-story, eight-level structure located at 235 Bowery between Stanton and Rivington Streets, at the origin of Prince Street in New York City is intended as a home for contemporary art and an incubator for new ideas, as well as an architectural contribution to New York’s urban landscape.
