Michael Eastman painting Greco-Egyptian

Description: Michael Eastman likes the idea of words on a painting. This work, "Greco-Egyptian", shows how Eastman uses words, numbers and figures as abstract elements. View detail of Greco-Egyptian-like lettering. Sometimes the words are just marks, but sometimes they enhance the meaning of the painting. The latter tends to be true when the artist quotes a snippet of poetry. In this painting, faintly visible in the underpainting, are the words "the best lack all conviction" from "The Second Coming" a W.B. Yeats poem. Eastman's handling of color and paint surface is always fascinating. View painting detail.

Michael Eastman's paintings have a nice visual and conceptual complexity that takes time to apprehend. His works are not puzzles that snap into place, but these paintings do reward the viewer who puzzles over them. Visit the Tribeca studio of Michael Eastman whose work is included in the collection of Hirshhorn Museum (Washington, DC) and the Mauntner-Markof Collection (Vienna, Austria).
