Doodactic, Larry Eisenstein's exhibition at Loop

Larry Eisenstein

April 30 - May 22, 2011

Larry Eisenstein quotes Philip Guston, The Chicago Panel, 1958 "...I think that every real painter wants to be, and his greatest desire is to be a realist, in the sense that you want to make concrete, with your material, with your matter, with your form, how you feel. ...if you eliminated the word abstract, made it illegal, like a penalty, you know, to use the word abstract, nonobjective, nonfigurative, then you'd have to about how different they are. Or else not talk about them but feel the difference."

Eisenstein is a visual artist obsessed with making marks. He is compulsively driven to exploit line in his work. Eisenstein lives and works in Toronto where he is a sometimes teacher, art director, illustrator and writer.
