About the artist
Our exhibition, Five Summer Suns features the work of five of New York City's most influential contemporary artists. Works from these widely exhibited artists are included in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA and The Brooklyn Museum as well as many private collections.
The five favored sons of Five Summer Suns are:
Stephen Lack, whose work filters the imagery through the lens of memory and media. Stephen's underground films have opened at the New Directors series at the Whitney Museum and MoMA. Louis Renzoni, who paints in layers, sanding and repainting until background details disappear, leaving figures that seem to be emerging from places in our own memory. Walter Robinson, a member of the so-called "Pictures Generation", took part in the historic "Times Square Show" in 1980 and has exhibited his work widely in the years since. James Romberger is noted for his pastel drawings and his work as a cartoonist. In addition to his work as an artist, James was a co-founder of the seminal East Village gallery, Gound Zero. Conrad Vogel, who has contributed his "Coney Island Adult Coloring Book".
