Justin Wood, "Sea Bass,” 2018, oil on canvas, 19 x 24 in.

An exhibition of contemporary paintings and drawings alongside Old Master works, revealing the unbroken line of fine art into the 21st century.

From Robert Simon Fine Art, NY, NY:

Art historian and art dealer Robert Simon curates a selection of Old Master paintings and drawings paired with new works by New York–based painters Jacob Collins, Colleen Barry, Anthony Baus, Will St. John, and Justin Wood, who are all instructors at Grand Central Atelier.

These 21st century atelier artists are carefully attuned to the idea that in order to evince this language with roots in the ancient world, one must first be a humble observer of nature and bear witness to its nuance and sensitivity.

When fully realized through years of serious commitment to study, this language possesses great power to communicate the human condition with limitless beauty and endless variation.
