Stephen Duren: A Life of Painting

September 15 - November 15

Sixty years have passed since Duren first took up a paintbrush. In this time, his work has experienced a push and pull between realism and abstraction, resulting in an evolving stylistic approach. Some work evokes the soft and poetic landscapes of George Innes, others reflect inspiration from the geometric reductions of Richard Diebenkorn’s lyrical abstractions. Much of Duren’s work bridges this gap. He has also painted allegorical works dealing with personal trauma, and continues his practice of creating plein-air (outdoor painting) suites of paintings at specific locations. Binding all of this together is a deep understanding of color and an emphasis on line and perspective, nurtured by his connection to the land.
