"Gino Hollander (1924-2015) was an American painter best known for abstract representations of the human figure, landscapes, and bulls. In a bold and fluid style similar to the work of Franz Kline, Hollander’s paintings were calligraphic in their energetic mark-making. “I chose painting for the immediacy of the moment the medium can allow—its immediacy of expression. I find my deepest moments are of feeling and that is what I strive for in my painting,” he once reflected. “The art of painting provides me with a constant mirror of my being—both successes and failures, the good moments and bad.” His work is pure emotion.
The painter paints. He refuses to discuss his work or for that matter, art in general. To him "there's nothing verbal about a canvas. A painting is simply one way to express a feeling and feelings can only be made less if they are talked to death". Beginning and end of the conversation.
