Description of Pictures: Realism Transformed: John Winslow's Wild New World
June 13 through July 26, 2015
In the early to mid 1980s masterful Washington realist John Winslow engineered a series of stunning changes in his work: Precisely defined spaces became ambiguous, right angles became swooping curves, and once-static figures left gravity behind to dance gracefully and crazily through the air. By radically recasting his art, Winslow set the stage for the surprising, vibrant and equally masterful body of work that is the focus of this exhibition.

I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, some system options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm sure you're thrilled by your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

KATWIN_150612_025.JPG: By the early 1970s, Realist painter John Winslow had demonstrated complete mastery of his chosen subject -- the human figure and natural light in precisely defined interior spaces (with the occasional, equally masterful foray out of doors). A decade later, after an intense period of soul-searching about the purposes of his art, Winslow engineered a series of stunning changes: Exacting Renaissance perspectives became ambiguous, right angles became swooping curves, once-static figures left gravity behind to dance through the air with a wild sort of grace, and the old studio setting came to resemble a stage where the improbable and the impossible became the norms. By radically recasting his art to combine representation with abstraction, tradition with improvisation, gravity with levitation, and everyday reality with a potent world of dreams, Winslow set the stage for the surprising, vibrant body of work that is the focus of this exhibition.

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
