The gallery is pleased to announce its participation in the New York debut of the Volta Art Fair with a solo exhibition of new paintings by Brooklyn-based artist Saul Becker.

Saul Becker creates dreamlike landscapes that combine fragments from different places and sources. As a contemporary landscape painter, his work is both genuine and deceiving: genuine in his use of a traditional genre without mockery and deceiving in his ability to make discoveries within this tried and true realm. A lot takes place in his seemingly benign pastoral scenes, which conjure up fragile yet potent metaphors of loss and fleeting utopia.

Saul Becker (b. 1975, Tacoma, WA) lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He received a MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University; Richmond, VA and a BFA from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD); Halifax, NS. His work has been featured in exhibitions at the Lab Gallery, New York, Victory Hall Art Center, Jersey City, NJ; and the Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, WA; among others. He was the recipient of the prestigious Virginia Museum of Fine Art Fellowship as well as a Washington State Arts Award. His work has been discussed in NY Arts Magazine and The Seattle Times, among others.
