GBGLA is pleased to present “Raymond Logan: Local Icons,” the gallery’s second exhibition of works by the Los Angeles-based artist. The exhibition features the artist’s new cityscape oil paintings and continues through February 20, 2021.
Raymond Logan is painter of recognizable objects and places but adamantly not a realist. While his subject matter is wide ranging, he renders each with a deep reverence for its unique subtleties of shape, shadow, and most importantly, color. Working in thickly applied paint and a rich color palette, Logan uses deft strokes in surprising colors extrapolated from what he sees. Using this unique technique, his paintings become fully abstract up close. Logan writes, “My work is born through solid draftsmanship plus a liberal application of paint via a brush or a knife or anything I can get my hands on, plus plenty of color experimentation and the carving of my medium.”
