Paul Feeley’s most important artistic output can be distilled into the short decade between 1955 and 1965, landing him squarely in the heyday of Abstract Expressionism which aesthetics he resolutely rejected. Focusing on the earlier part of this time span, Garth Greenan is currently showing a beautiful suite of paintings and water colors that show the artist’s emblematic mastery of figure/ground relationships and a keen understanding of color theory. Feeley’s works from this period owe more to Helen Frankenthaler than Myron Stout, a contemporary whom he is often mentioned with. Abstract but warm, formal but free, Feeley’s fluent biomorphic forms blur into delicate color stains that rouse a mesmerizing lyricism which is hypnotic as it is palliative. At Garth Greenan through April 7.
