The Outing, 2001

Alex Zwarenstein

Oil on Canvas

Accomplished in various media including oil, gouache, and watercolor, Zwarenstein chooses subject matter that ranges from intimate figural compositions to bold urban landscapes. Applying thin layers of pigments and utilizing painting techniques steeped in the traditions of the 19 Century, the artist manages to convey a sense of contemporary urgency in his works, resulting in highly stylized imagery.
