Alan Gussow
Hudson

1962

About

Alan Gussow is renowned for his inventive and tenacious blend of abstraction and realism, with this painting a spectacular vision of the landscape along the Hudson River near his home in New York, in all the vibrant colors and textures of autumn. 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. As his engagement with environmentalism grew, Gussow used landscape painting to move our focus towards the earth and our experiences with nature.
