James Kalm is drifting up the West Side in late spring and decides to park his bike and take in an exhibition of paintings by the New York legend, Paul Resika. As one of the last surviving members of the New York School, Resika has always maintained a connection with realism and land or seascapes. After two years of study with Hans Hofmann, he ventured to Europe, studying in Italy, and returned to the city in the middle of the tumultuous 50s. These land/seascapes are deceptively simple pushing their depictions of nature to near abstraction, and bear witness to the masterly use of the painting medium, and a refined palette that pays homage to forbearers like Matisse, Duffy and Marin.
