Loaded with the elegiac poetry of immediacy, his paintings are intended to make us reflect on the convergence of perception and awareness, on the relationship between art and nature, and on the notion of the sublime of the moment. Katz’s recent landscapes represent the height of a refined style that embodies the potential of contemporary art to aprehend the greatness of the present. They allude to the condition of being at a time when the incessant flow of images in our lives leads us to often detach ourselves from life’s circumstances, from the reality so accurately depicted by Alex Katz.

Exhibition organized by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
