Bernard Bahr
American, born 1937

After a distinguished 25-year career in advertising, Bernard Bahr turned his attention to painting full-time. In his vibrantly colored semi-abstractions, sweeping gestural marks often obstruct or collide with depictions of figures, animals and everyday objects. His landscapes attempt to capture the essential experience of being outside in a manner reminiscent of Willem de Kooning’s “Abstract Parkway Landscapes” (1957-61). Through thick, vigorously applied layers of acrylic, he articulates the physicality of the natural world, as in Heat Wave (2010).
