Froelick Gallery is proud to introduce Miles Cleveland Goodwin in his first solo exhibition with us. Chasing Deer is a collection of dynamic winter landscapes which pay tribute to the works of Northern European Masters. Exercising a sophisticated economy of palette, Goodwin applies thin oil glazes of umber, gray and ice blue to layered white surfaces, lending an unexpected activity and depth to his snowy fields and valleys, as well as a radiant inner light to areas of darkness. Brighter hues, when they appear- red mittens, a band of sunset pink, a pheasant’s jade and gold plumage- do not contrast with the broader setting, but seem to be integrated parts of it. Figures bundled in coats, hats and scarves are tempered by their austere environment. Many seem to be moving, with backs to the viewer, toward an unseen destination. These works may be scenes from a hermitage, a bare and sometimes harsh place that is also quiet and beautiful, not unlike the external and internal place the artist seeks in which to pursue painting.
