Lawrence Fine Art is pleased to present "George Schulman: Sweet Small Things" opening February 22 on Artsy and running for two weeks.
"The exhibition will provide an attractive entry point for collectors of Schulman's work or for those with a limited budget," explained Gallery Director Howard Shapiro. "All works will be $3,000 or less with some under $1000. No work will be larger than 24 x 24."
George Schulman's wildly exuberant, colorful and kinetic paintings and collages take the viewer on a roller coaster ride in and out of the pictorial plane. Viewed from one perspective, they can look like Candy Land-like maps of a fantasy place.
Their inspiration and construction come from a variety of places. Schulman is the son of a seamstress and tailor, and his forms seem to mimic zippers, buttons and the detritus of a NYC sweat shop. Often he includes fabric swatches in his designs. Artistic inspiration includes Valazquez, Seurat, of course Matisse, long-time mentor and colleague Knox Martin but also the many Street artists Schulman got to know in the 80s and 90s.
"We are particular fans of Schulman's smaller works," said Shapiro. "Everything good in his work seems to show well in these works."
Schulman lives and works on Long Island, New York.
