Gene Hedge: The Pattern of Nature

Lincoln Glenn, New York

Thu 16 Nov 2023 to Sat 13 Jan 2024

542 West 24th Street, NY 10011 Gene Hedge: The Pattern of Nature

Tue-Sat 10am-6pm

Artist: Gene Hedge

Lincoln Glenn’s opening in Chelsea celebrates the occasion of an exhibition of Gene Hedge’s color field paintings. The paintings, which date from 1966 through 1970, represent an experimental period when Hedge turned away from producing the found-object collages that he was best known for in the 1950s, and discovered the then-new medium of acrylic paint.

Last seen in a solo exhibition at Poindexter Gallery in 1968, Hedge’s paintings were self-described as “a sort of dialogue between control and lack of control.” Hedge was a perfectionist who was constantly looking towards nature for inspiration and clarification. Consider the appearance of a snowflake or a zebra’s stripes in that they are similar, but always unique. Such was the natural phenomena Hedge captured in his squeegee-assisted paintings produced in his Greenwich Village studio that he occupied from the early 1960s until his death in 2017.
