Whatever the medium in which he works, artist Alex Katz endeavors to record his experience of optical sensations. Featuring an array of prints, drawings, and paintings from the permanent collection, this installation demonstrates Katz’s study of light and shadow and, especially, their relationships to flat color. In his depiction of windows ablaze within a dark façade, for example, or sunlight striking a figure's head and shoulders, Katz succeeds in rendering light with extraordinary materiality.
Please note: A Matter of Light will close temporarily from March 31 through July 12 during reinstallation of the Museum. The exhibition will re-open on July 13 and remain on view through September 15, 2013.
