Cavalier Galleries is pleased to announce the opening of our latest exhibition, Explorations by Francine Tint. A selection of Tint’s outstanding and latest large scale abstract paintings will be on view from February 28th to March 24th at Cavalier Gallery, 4th floor, 3 W 57th Street, New York, New York. An opening reception will be held on February 28th from 6pm to 8pm on the 4th floor. Gallery hours are 10am-6pm Monday through Saturday; 11am-5pm on Sundays.
The exhibition will include 8-10 of Tint’s most recent works, including her acclaimed large-scale work inspired by Monet, Wonky, 46 in by 214 in.
A standout in her field, Francine Tint’s work is easily recognizable. Characterized by bold, expressive bursts of color, often on large canvases, Tint's work speaks to her history as well as her ability. She studied painting at Pratt Institute as well as the Brooklyn Museum College, developing her signature style while always painting in a small space. She gravitates towards large scale works and will often stretch canvas across the walls and ceiling of her studio. This results in the drips in her pieces that have become a key component of her work. She cites painting as her outlet to letting loose, freeing herself from the discipline she brings into all other aspects of her life.
Tint’s work has been exhibited in over thirty solo shows in the United States and Europe and is in the permanent collections of over 27 museums including the Clement Greenberg collection at the Portland Art Museum and the Krannert Art Museum in Chicago. Her work is in private and corporate collections including Pepsi Co. and Mount Sinai Hospital. Tint is also the recipient of the prestigious Pollock Krasner Grant.
