|Painted Abstracts by Richard Kattman, in the Gallery through March 24th.|
The brilliant colors of Richard Kattman’s recent large-scale canvases “hit you immediately: bright, sharp and passionate, and despite the abstract nature of many of them, their subject matter is somewhat easy to identify and inspirations respectfully obvious,” according to Artscope magazine editor Brian Goslow.
Kattman, an award-winning artist, landscape architect, and photographer from Holliston, MA, bases his paintings on landscape and the intuitive, emotive mind. Along with brilliant color, the sheer size of these paintings (many are nearly 6 ft. wide) is impressive.
In a recent interview for Artscope, Brian Goslow spoke with Kattman about his new large-scale abstract paintings, now on view at the Gallery.

"Working large presents opportunities to 'use big brushes', to fling paint with abandon and force, to create order out of violence or action," commented Kattman.
" Of course, impact is a primary goal; more red appears as more red!"
