Alex Tyng's Solo Show, Dowling Walsh Gallery, Rockland, Maine

My friend Alexandra Tyng has become one of the country's most interesting representational painters and her new show of narrative figurative paintings at Dowling Walsh Gallery is a major event for anyone who cares about the direction painting is taking in this country.

I can't say enough good things about this show. I've seen a few of these works and I'm amazed by their power, imagination and depth of emotion. She has a remarkable ability to transmit universal themes while at the same time pursuing a private, deliberate journey and Alex's ability to show the quality of light in her technique is extraordinary. They're intensely personal paintings with mystery and intelligence.

I'm so very proud to have such an inspiring master as a friend. Alex is a brilliant artist, painting at the top of her game. I really wish I could be there tonight. Go, Alex!
