Figureworks is very pleased to open this new season with new paintings by Michael Sorgatz. This is Michael’s first exhibition with the gallery and we are honored to showcase his latest series.
Michael’s paintings are immediately captivating by their vibrancy and playful abstraction. They keep one’s interest by discovering that they hold a whole world within them which is familiar to those living or walking throughout the New York City landscape. Clusters of human forms begin to surface amidst a lively and chaotic ground. The atmosphere of the city is apparent and the pace of these darkened figures breaking up the horizon feels familiar and expected, as if the need to move from their oncoming direction is inevitable. Though these paintings capture an everyday New York moment, the energy and movement in the work transcends far beyond a single moment.
Figureworks is located at 168 N. 6th St., Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY 11211, one block from the Bedford Avenue “L” train. The gallery is open to the public Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 1-6 PM and is dedicated to exhibiting contemporary and 20th century fine art of the human form.
