Press Release

Charles Seliger began exhibiting his work in 1942 and had his first one-man show in 1945 at Peggy Guggenheim's Art of this Century gallery. For over fifty years, Seliger has been collecting, studying, interpreting and redifining nature:

"The intricacies of structure, within natural forms, animate my paintings: beyond recognizable appearances, the invisible reveals itself, with its splendid complexities and remarkable truthfulness."

This is Michael Rosenfeld Gallery's fourth exhibition of Charles Seliger's small-scale paintings and watercolors. Charles Seliger: The 1940s & 1990s illustrates the artist's life-long exploration of organic abstraction with works separated by half a century.

Michael Rosenfeld Gallery is the exclusive representative of Charles Seliger.
