LUSTER: REALISM AND HYPERREALISM IN CONTEMPORARY AUTOMOBILE AND MOTORCYCLE PAINTING
June 16 — September 3, 2023
LUSTER: Realism and Hyperrealism in Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle Paintings is a traveling exhibition comprising over 55 paintings by nearly 15 leading photorealists and hyperrealists specializing in automobiles and motorcycles as their primary subject of choice. Their work exemplifies the very best of automotive painting being done today and builds on that of the first wave of photorealists in the ‘60s and ‘70s, which included the likes of Harold Cleworth, Don Eddy, Richard Estes, and Ralph Goings.
Featuring dazzling paintings that encompass a broad range of vintage vehicles, recent classics, off-road vehicles, exotics, and more, LUSTER is a celebration of mechanical and artist design and style, the combination of which will have great allure with audiences. Like the shiny automobiles and motorcycles portrayed by the artists, its paintings can be characterized by the luster that permeates their imagery.
