Greg Kucera Gallery is pleased to announce our first exhibition of work by Seattle artist Norman Lundin. The title, Spaces: Inside and Outside, is a straightforward description of his paintings’ subject matter. What you see are painterly descriptions of spaces, rooms and landscapes, with no people visible though their presence is felt.
“As a painter my skills at describing subject matter are reasonably good; for many years though, the subject matter, is generally not what interests me. What has really interested me are the spaces between the things described. As a frame of reference for most of the works in this show, try thinking of the objects as existing to describe the space. - Norman Lundin
