Sperlak returns to SOMA for his eight consecutive annual show. The exhibition, opening September 12th, demonstrates again why Sperlak is one of the most respected and collected artists working in the region.
Sperlak’s primary focus is “plein-air” landscape painting, working directly from nature and distilling it into its essential color and form. “Tell Me About Tomorrow” is a new body of work featuring luminous landscapes of the New Jersey coast and rich pastels from his travels this year in Washington, Oregon, New Mexico, and France. Sperlak captures the picturesque countryside of the Pacific Northwest, nearby vineyards, waterfalls, and mountain views, the open desert of New Mexico, and on to the French countryside of Normandy.
Sperlak’s pastels enhance the visual impact of each scene by reducing the discordant realities of nature into a subtle yet powerful unity. Sperlak’s work is often color fields with articulated strokes that allow the viewer to fill in the details. Sperlak’s expertise of mixing brilliant pastel colors and his keen sense of creating light, evoke the mood and sensibilities of the impressionistic painters.
