The Anita Shapolsky Gallery will be presenting a rare exhibition of John Hultberg’s paintings alongside a group of artists who crossed paths on Monhegan Island off the coast of Maine. His renowned dealer, Martha Jackson, in 1961 helped him acquire a home and refuge there where he remained for 40 years. Among the artists joining him there were Michael Lowe, William Manning, Zero Mostel, Hultberg’s wife, Lynne Drexler, whose abstract works have recently been lauded by the art world, and Martha Jackson, who studied with Hans Hofmann before becoming a gallerist.

Hultberg’s unique works, part abstract, part representational, don’t easily fit into any category, hence he described himself as the “painter of the in-between.” His dark, dramatic architectonic “landscapes” and “interiors,” with deep perspective and strong horizontal lines, though predominately abstract, are often interspersed with demonic or alien figures.

His paintings take viewers through a vortex into compartmentalized “apocalyptic vistas and cinematic windows into the unknown” These broken up images often seem to be buildings or cities in the process of either being constructed or being destroyed by cataclysmic natural disasters like earthquakes or fires, or the devastation caused by wars, or pollution etc. making his works extremely prophetic.

Seymour Boardman, artistically formed in New York and Paris, before and after WWII, developed and defined his style alongside fellow influential artists like Sam Francis, Larry Calcagno, John Hultberg and Frank Lobdell. Exhibiting in solo and group shows from the 1950s until his death in 2005, Boardman's paintings can be found in national and international collections.

Boardman's paintings can be recognized by an apparent underlying grid that sets the stage for an orchestration of linear motifs that became more and more simplified over the years. Anita Shapolsky highlights the intellectual European starting point of his work that matured and evolved into an almost jazz-like improvisational musical score of the line moving across the canvas.
