Findlay Galleries Chairman and CEO James Borynack, commented, “Findlay Galleries is very proud to welcome Ronnie Landfield’s ‘Concurrence’ exhibition to our new gallery location at 32 East 57th Street, New York. Landfield’s color field abstractions continue to develop with effortless sophistication, utilizing form, size, and color in a progressive yet retrospective way.”
Ronnie Landfield was discovered in the mid-1960s by collector and architect Philip Johnson, who purchased many of his large works, donating some to important museums and keeping others for his private collection. Landfield exhibited at the Whitney Museum’s annual exhibitions in 1967 and 1969 and at the Whitney Biennial in 1973. By the early 1970s, Landfield became a pioneer of Lyrical Abstraction, exploring landscape as a subject, incorporating color with stain painting. In 2007, the Butler Institute of American Art mounted a retrospective of his work.
“In Landfield’s work, land does become field – “field” here referencing visual scope more than natural terrain, although the conditions of nature clearly inflect his practice. In fact, the horizon at once separates and unites field and land, the space of sky overhead no less than topographic space underfoot. Landfield is practicing abstraction, of course, and is thus not bound in by the horizon line.” – Peter Frank, Art Critic (LA Weekly, SOHO Weekly, Huffington Post)
Landfield’s paintings are represented in public and private collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Gallery, the Seattle Museum of Art, the Norton Simon Museum, the Walker Art Center, the Federal Reserve Board, the U.S. State Department, Charles Schwab, Mobil, GE, ARCO, Prudential Insurance, Chase Manhattan, New York University, and Stanford University.
