Jane Wilson: Recent Paintings features work inspired by the landscape of the East End of Long Island and the artist’s childhood home in Iowa. The catalog accompanying the exhibition presents an overview of Wilson’s sixty-year career and features a compilation of writing about her art by such figures as John Canaday, Fairfield Porter, James Schuyler, and Stephen Westfall.

Wilson’s ethereal new paintings are sensitive investigations of color, documents of fleeting hours, and experiential understandings of seasons. The artist translates her memories of the land, sea, and sky into hovering presences of light and texture shot through with vibrant, unexpected color. At once spontaneous and contemplative, her paintings make the most passing phenomena tangible, evoking the common but impossible-to-articulate experiences of heavy air, oncoming night, and passing thunderstorms.
