Rodney Greenblat: Something to Look Forward to Exhibition
Friday, July 10 - Sunday, July 12
Hudson Hall is proud to reopen its doors on June 27, 2020 with Rodney Alan Greenblat’s aptly-titled, Something to Look Forward to, an enjoyable, whimsical and engaging collection of new and archival works bursting with color and underpinned with wit and charm.
In Something to Look Forward to, the artist presents us with a vision of his own wonderland future; a land of brightly colored modernist forms populated with ladybugs, friendly robots and giant emblematic cats watched over by “Lemon Eye”- a mystical and beneficial Zen deity who’s image is in almost every work. Greenblat offers us an antidote to the pessimism, division, and dangers of today: the possibility of optimism, wholeness and safety. Familiar and wildly imaginative at the same time, the paintings and constructions celebrate the ability we all have to re-imagine our world.
