"Gregory Amenoff: Selected Prints 1983-2013" is the first solo exhibition of woodcuts, lithographs, intaglio and monoprints in this artist's distinguished career. Known primarily as a painter, Mr. Amenoff has also had a long career as a printmaker. This survey traces Mr. Amenoff's first forays into large format color block woodcut through to his later painterly monoprints, aquatints and lithographs. Whether its painting, prints or drawings, Gregory Amenoff works in the tradition of the great American nature painters using the landscape as the inspiration for his abstract imagery. According to Rachel Rosenfield Lafo, "Gregory Amenoff responds intuitively to stimuli in the natural world of landscape and atmosphere and the inner worlds of emotion and spirit, blending his perceptions into organically abstract images. In his work the outer world is internalized; the inner world is manifested in visible form." For those who have followed Gregory Amenoff's career as a painter, this exhibit will present his changes and discoveries as an artist and the influences these discoveries have had on his painting. For those new to Mr. Amenoff's work, this show will be an exciting introduction to a great 21st century American artist.
