Small Paintings 1999-2001

Elizabeth Harris Gallery in cooperation with The Milton Resnick and Pat Passlof Foundation is pleased to present an exhibition of small paintings from 1999 - 2001 by Pat Passlof. This selection of paintings was made in cooperation with the foundation, and has not been exhibited before. A fully illustrated catalog will accompany the exhibition.

Pat Passlof was born in Georgia in 1928, and grew up in New York City. She studied at Queens College, and in 1948 attended summer school at Black Mountain College, where she studied with Willem de Kooning, Josef Albers and Merce Cunningham, among others. She continued to study privately with de Kooning after returning to New York, where de Kooning also introduced her to her future husband, fellow painter Milton Resnick. After earning a BFA degree at Cranbrook Academy in 1951, Passlof quickly established herself in the vital milieu of downtown New York Abstract Expressionist painters centered on Tenth Street, where she had a series of studios and took part in group exhibitions through the 1950s. By the end of the 60’s she was living and working in her converted synagogue on Forsyth St as was her husband Milton Resnick in his synagogue on Eldridge Street now the location of The Milton Resnick and Pat Passlof Foundation. Passlof continued living and painting in New York up until her death in 2011.

This exhibition of small paintings is Passlof’s ninth solo show at Elizabeth Harris Gallery. This group of work created at the turn of the millennium is the result of a lifetime of slowly acquired facility in the art of painting. Passlof creates lush surfaces with lively vibrant colors and deft brushstrokes that are true to her abstract expressionist roots.

Concurrently there is an exhibition Pat Passlof: The Brush is the Finger of the Brain at The Milton Resnick and Pat Passlof Foundation, October 11, 2019 - April 11, 2020 and additionally Pat Passlof: Fifty Years of Paper at the New York Studio School, December 9, 2019 – January 19, 2020.
