|Blue sketch by Chris Pugliese, oil on linen, 2008.|
I had the pleasure of meeting artist Christopher Pugliese recently, and thumbed through the catalog—hot off the presses—that will soon be out to accompany his solo museum show at the New Britain Museum of American Art. The exhibition, New/Now: Christopher Pugliese Paintings and Drawings, 1995-2010 is a retrospective of sorts and is up through January 23, 2011.
If you have a chance to see it, let me know your impressions of the artist's work—his penchant for self-portraiture, his skilled use of anatomy, and his overall style. Should be the start of a good conversation!
