John Himmelfarb : Geared Up At Luise Ross Gallery New York City, NY

John Himmelfarb's astonishing new sculptures in bronze and plywood as well as large-scale paintings are on view at the Luise Ross Gallery in New York City through April 17, 2010. 

See the work: John Himmelfarb at Luise Ross Gallery.

Himmelfarb is one of the most innovative artists working today.  His sense of line in everything he produces is absolutely his own.  You can see it in the drawings, prints and now in the sculptures.  His work is collected across the United States and in Europe.  He recently produced the iron gates for the Duncan home (and collection) in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The work pictured here is a new turn in the artist's oeuvre – taking to plywood to create one of his signature trucks.  A large scale (actual truck) was recently produced and a slide show is now on his web site, here: CONVERSION, LINCOLN, NEBRASKA.

Himmelfarb lives and works in Chicago, Illinois.  His most recent book is a compendium of his prints: The Prints of John Himmelfarb : A Catalogue Raisonné 1967 - 2004.  (Hudson Hills Press, Manchester, Vermont).
