Stephen Magsig at George Billis Gallery in NYC
The paintings for this exhibit are based from direct observation and from my photographic reference of the Cityscapes of New York. I work in oils on linen canvas and linen panels in the simple and direct Alla Prima method. Although my work is representational I am more interested in the “Story” of the scene and the “Plasticity”of the paint than in creating an exact representation of the subject.
