Lachman Gallery in Peddler’s Village in Lahaska hosts its 69th annual show, “The Power of the Brush,” running through Dec. 10.
“I try to approach each painting with a minimum of predigested information. I look at the world with the natural curiosity of a child, always looking for unique qualities that each new moment brings,” Lachman said in his artist statement.
“...The most exciting paintings, for me, are the ones that balance a bold fresh approach with the sensitive and subtle workings of the heart and mind.”
Lachman said he has always been interested in translucency and has created a process on a transparent surface that allows him to adhere any medium (acrylic, pastel, oils, watercolor) and produce “an extraordinary amount of luminosity and translucency in my work.”
Lachman said he paints intuitively, loose, free and spontaneously, not only because it satisfies him, but because it allows viewers to involve themselves visually and emotionally. “Their imagination is ignited from my own, and in that, they complete the work,” he said.
