Tuesday – Saturday 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM

In Memorium

Jan Krugier was perhaps the most significant art collector and dealer of our times. His passion and uncompromising vision can be seen clearly in what is one of the greatest collections known. We at Dactyl are honored to have hosted Dialogues, the last exhibition curated by Jan Krugier, before he passed away. We are especially thankful to Izabela Grocholski and John Mollett who made this incredible event possible. We would also like to thank Hikari Yokoyama.

Turning on Turner

Online exhibition 1999-2001

Much of the later work of Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) is the epitome of abstraction, that is, his images are not merely nonrepresentational. The paintings featured in this online exhibition are truly reified representations of seascapes, landscapes, and cityscapes. They are so reified, in fact, as to be almost symbolic of what they depict rather than illustrative. Dactyl Foundation for the Arts & Humanities presents “Turning on Turner,” an online exhibition of contemporary artists whose work is influenced by the great British painter. The show includes works by Dozier Bell, Pamela Bowers, James Crosby, Joy Garnett, Neil Grayson, and W. Whitney Smith III. Shown left is Turner’s variously named Light and Colour (Goethe’s Theory)- The Morning after the Deluge- Moses Writing the Book of Genesis (c. 1843), Oil on Canvas, 787mm x 787mm Continue reading “Turning on Turner”
