The Serge Sorokko Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of paintings by David Moriarty. The exhibition opens February 14 and runs through March 14, 1998. There will be an opening reception for the artist Saturday, February 14 from 6pm to 8pm.
The exhibition presents work that continues in a narrative style in which Moriarty has worked for the last ten years. "My work has taken on a historical context," says Moriarty. "I was interested in myth and the element of time." These concerns have taken the form of fantastical landscapes: Meticulously detailed, anachronistic, fusions of romanticism and irony that simultaneously evoke and shatter the idea on an American Eden that never was Or in Moriarty's words, paintings "about this encounter with what I've construed as innocence." David Moriarty received an M.F.A. from Columbia University. He exhibits regularly in New York and throughout the United States. He lives and teaches in Western Massachusetts.
