Press Release

New Paintings and Drawings
Mar 25 - Apr 17, 1993

Starting March 25th the Frumkin/Adams Gallery will show a new group of works by Roy DeForest. In these works DeForest presents a version of the "great-out-of-doors" that is populated by an unusual cast of hermits, animals, and assorted spirits. 

The exhibition will include a small painting in wax relief- a new development- as well as several large-scale paintings and drawings. The drawings, pastel and acrylic on paper, are mounted in elaborately carved and painted frames; in fact, the frames are so strong an aspect of these new works that the artist considers the sculptures that incorporate drawings. 

Roy DeForest has been exhibiting nationally for over thirty years and he has continued over the years to develop his unique oeuvre without reference to trends or art world activities. He remains a true eccentric - very informed and knowledgeable- but following his own course, as the present exhibition amply demonstrates. 

The Roy DeForest exhibition will run from March 25th to April 17th. The Frumkin/Adams Gallery is open from 10 to 6, Tuesday through Friday, and from 10 to 5:30 on Saturdays.
