The Ann Tower Gallery is pleased to present "Four Seasons, Eight Places: New Paintings by Robert Tharsing," an exhibition of eight new large scaled oil paintings inspired by Kentucky, Nova Scotia and the Bahamas. The beauty and wonder of Nature have been at the heart of Tharsing's work throughout his career and is paramount in these new paintings that present us with imagery that is clearly recognizable, as well as abstracted and painterly. His layering of the paint is prominent, from the initial stained ground to thick patches of color swept across the canvas with large and small palette knives he uses to depict the specifics of sky, light, water, rocks, ground, and plants. Tharsing's mastery of paint
and his love for places familiar to him, allow him to infuse the work with a transformational aspect that invites the viewer to enter and linger.
Tharsing will also show a selection of smaller works from his series "Rock Paintings,"
realistic portraits of rocks found on Rous Island, Nova Scotia, which he has painted on site for the past fifteen years at his seaside studio.
