Nathan Oliveira: Emanations – Opening
1613 Paseo De Peralta
Over a career that spanned six decades, Nathan Oliveira (1928-2010) was known for his introspective, haunting figurative works done in oil painting, bronze sculpture, and printmaking. Throughout his lifetime, Oliveira was known for exploring the elemental relationship between figure and ground, suggesting questions of identity and consciousness through painterly brushwork and a highly tactile surface.
LewAllen Galleries is honored to present an exhibition entitled Nathan Oliveira: Emanations, opening on Friday, January 21 and continuing through Saturday, February 19, 2022.
In addition to several major oil paintings, Emanations also includes bronze sculptures and works on paper from various periods; together, these illustrate the versatility of Oliveira’s career. All of the work presented in the exhibition comes from the artist’s estate.
