Levis Fine Art announce a solo exhibition of the paintings by Budd Hopkins which (1931-2011)opens March 27th and will run through April 26th. Hopkins’ unique contribut ion to Modernism is significant, with his singular approach of using ‘two modes within the same work; one ordered, geometric, the other more expressive, painterly, the ratio varying, seldom equally balanced but balanced nonetheless in his version of Mondrian’s dynamic Equilibrium’.
Having immersed himself in the New York art scene of the 1950s, Hopkins was influenced by friendships with fellow painters Robert Motherwell and Franz Kline. A chance sighting of a U.F.O. in 1963 was a seminal event for Hopkins, and for the next 50 years, his artistic life reflected the duality of things seen and unseen, the actual and abstract.
