Verne Dawson brings veiled erudition to 'Landscape Painting Now'

Verne Dawson's "Pagans" (2009–10) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now: From Pop Abstraction to New Romanticism, launching Wednesday, April 17, from 7–9 PM at the Whitney, where a panel discussion with Dawson, Lois Dodd, Enrique Martinez Celaya, Alison Elizabeth Taylor, Matthew Wong and author and moderator Barry Schwabsky will be followed by a signing. "The folksy style of Verne Dawson's paintings veils considerable esoteric erudition, a scholarly eye for the intellectual content of traditional culture," Schwabsky writes. "I keep playing around with numbers, math and astronomy, and how they show up in art and culture," Dawson is quoted. "Often I'll paint fairy tales, making sure all the attributes are right so the knowledge gets passed on. That's where this mathematical and astronomical information often finds itself, in fairy tales and folktales."
