Save Event: Rackstraw Downes: Paintings & Drawings

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


This will be Downes first solo show since 2014. His steadfast commitment to painting from observation, on site from start to finish, remains tantamount.


There is one thing I think realism is definitely not, though it is often confused with it, and that is a technique.  Technique is a skill you can learn so you don’t have to respond to what you are looking at, you don’t have to be inquisitive about it.  If something is real to you, the question becomes, not How do I do that, but What is this phenomenon I’m perceiving?                          ~Rackstraw Downes
