Gallery Henoch presents an exhibition by realist painter and New York City native Max Ferguson, of a new series entitled Urban Intimacy.

In his first solo show in five years, Ferguson returns to New York and investigates the enigmas of seeing as well as the looming disappearance of the city’s individuality and character due to gentrification. Finding inspiration in seventeenth-century Dutch masterpieces and quintessential American scenes by Edward Hopper, Ferguson paints the interiors of New York City from reality and depicts the relationship between the city and its citizens. While embracing techniques mastered by seventeenth-century artists, these punctilious oils on panel rather than canvas also evoke elements of contemporary urban realism.
