Haim Chanin Fine Arts is pleased to present the gallery’s first solo exhibition of  New York artist Paul Moran, on view from September 20 through November 1, 2008. The exhibition will feature twelve oil on canvas and board,  along with a selection of works on paper and photographs.

 

Paul Moran’s understated abstractions are characterized by a minimal palette: warm hues of ochre and brown, muted grays and blues or gauzy yellows convey to the viewer  the melancholic impression of the filter of memory and time. Moran’s works draw quietly  “on emotion, on an undefined reminiscence” (D. Wilk), leaving to the viewer the task  to create one’s own interpretation.

 

As Helen A. Harrison notes in The New York Times, Moran builds up “modulated  atmospheric paintings that exploit the translucency of thinned oil paint. In the spirit of the 19th-century Tonalist painters, but more abstractly, his dreamy canvases  evoke imaginary landscapes illuminated by mysterious diffused light”.  

 

Born in Philadelphia, Paul Moran received his training at the Pennsylvania Academy of  the Fine Arts. He has had numerous exhibitions in Europe and in the United States, including most recently a solo exhibition of his photographs at the Bartholdi Museum, Colmar (France) and group exhibitions at the Islip Art Museum, Long Island, New York, the UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles and the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf (Germany), among others.
