Gremillion & Co. Fine Art, Inc. is pleased to announce The Blue Palm of Desire, an exhibition of recent work by New York painter Gary Komarin, with an opening reception on Thursday, September 21 from 6-8 p.m.Gary Komarin is a risk taker in contemporary painterly abstraction.


His stalwart images have an epic quality that grip the viewer with the idea that he or she is looking at a contemporary description of something timeless. For Mr. Komarin, abstraction has never been a formal dead end. Rather, it has allowed him to challenge the limitations of the style–to make painting “include more,” precisely because a recognizable image excludes too much.Komarin has been called a “painter’s painter.” His status in this regard is based on the authenticity of his work, its deep connection to the tradition of modern painting as well as its sustained individuality as an utterly personal voice.


Gary Komarin has been honored with the Joan Mitchell Prize in Painting, the New York Foundation for the Arts Grant in Painting, the Edward Albee Foundation Fellowship in Painting, the Elizabeth Foundation, New York Prize in Painting and the Benjamin Altman Prize from the National Academy of Design Museum, New York. His work has appeared in articles and reviews in the New York Times, Art in America and Arts Magazine, among others.The exhibition will run through October 26, 2017. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
