Larissa Goldston Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by David Rathman. Against a Crooked Sky includes sixteen watercolor and ink paintings and will be on view from May 14 through June 20, 2009. There will be a reception for the artist on May 14 from 6 to 8pm.

In this exhibition, Rathman revisits the culture and mythology of the Old West and spaghetti westerns produced in the 1960s and 1970s. Populated by familiar characters—sheriffs, frontiersmen, villains, and the women who love them—the work imparts a longing for a world of absolutes. A world where, as Rathman puts it, “bad guys get punished and dispatched, and resolution comes quick and hard.”
