Wonder and Whimsy
Paintings by Barney Levitt
January 5 - February 28, 2020 in the Meeting Room Gallery
Oil paintings by Barney Levitt will be on exhibit in the library's Meeting Room Gallery during the months of January and February 2020.
The artist says of his work:
Much of my work is still life driven as it affords me total control of setups and lighting. I like working with ‘timeless’ objects, which give a sense of nostalgia to the viewer of a long ago era. Old radios, telephones and typewriters, rusted antique tools and glass bottles are often the subject matter of my work. I also love the reflective nature of metallic objects, which captures an image of me at work in my studio.
But just as each of us possess ever-changing moods and feelings; my still lifes vary in theme from the classical ‘old master’ setups, to the quirkier word play paintings. Titles are important to me as they give the viewer better insight into what I’m trying to convey. Humor also plays out in much of my work and I strive for a narrative that will capture the viewers’ attention. My work combines naturalistic detail with quirky offbeat compositions that often juxtapose ordinary objects in ways the viewer doesn’t expect.
