Abend Gallery is proud to present Deep Forest Light: Thane Gorek Solo Exhibition opening on September 11th, 2021.
The subject of my paintings is the beauty of the natural world. Having grown up in Colorado, I’ve spent a lot of time hiking and camping in the forests of the Rocky Mountains. This has instilled in me a deep love of the Western landscape. Most often, my paintings feature trees and forests. These are depicted in a stylized manner in order to reflect the sense of wonder I experience while in nature. I often use exaggerated colors, shapes, and textures to capture the strange contortions of aspen trees or the dazzling beauty of sun-dappled foliage. Above all, I hope my work brings a sense of joy, wonder, and tranquility to the viewer. -Thane Gorek
