“It’s not a question just of color, shape and form. It is a question whether there is a dialogue going on. One piece of a painting talks to another. It’s a lot you can do with a painting; (it) keeps me pumping.” – Donald Alter
The exhibition installation will seemingly undergo a dramatic change as Hudson Valley landscapes are taken away and replaced with significant earlier abstract, chromatic and linear paintings. Recent figurative works will remain. However, if we have eyes to see and have maintained our visual memories, no matter how stylistically dissimilar these works might apparently be, the viewer will recognize the overlapping visual narratives. When considered as chapters within a life’s work, they eventually coalesce as a very engaging and meaningful whole.
