The Anatomy of Summer Heat

1996

About

Framed watercolor, 37.5 x 49.5 inches Titled lower left: The Anatomy of Summer Heat Dated lower center: 7/11/93 Signed lower right: Alan Gussow Renowned for his inventive and tenacious blend of abstraction and realism, Alan Gussow’s artistic vision is poetic and profound. In a career that spanned nearly fifty years, he achieved significant recognition as an artist, environmental activist, and educator. Gussow’s unique imagery captures the intimate link between man and the environment, invoking his personal encounters with the smells, sounds, tastes, and sensations of nature. His work is infused with deep cultural and environmental insights, rooted in a beautifully refined aesthetic, and a visual celebration of the places he explored and experienced passionately. These works harnessed the vitality and physical energy of applying paint characteristic of Abstract Expressionism, the dominant style of this period. Gussow was adept at integrating all senses into our perceptual experience, and he created large-scale works that reflected the actual forces observed and experienced in the natural world around him. He painted abstractions based on patterns in nature, capturing the visual rhythms of snow, clouds, wind, gardens, rain, and ice. As his engagement with environmentalism grew, Gussow used landscape painting to move our focus towards the earth and our experiences with nature.
