Ted Katz: Questions

RICHARD SPEER
Tuesday May 14
Butters
520 NW Davis St., 2nd floor
 
After his beloved mother passed away, painter Ted Katz traveled to Eastern Europe and Russia to absorb the heritage that had been hers. In those diverse landscapes, both terrestrial and psychological, he found the inspiration for the paintings in Questions. Katz paints landscapes semi-abstractly, so that according to the viewer’s eye and mood, swaths of color register either as sweeping brushstrokes, plains, hills or misty skies. In works such as What Light You Have, he tilts the horizon line, imbuing the composition with the slightly off-kilter ambiguity of questions—such as "Who was my mother, and who am I?"—that cannot fully be answered. Through June 1.
