A large portrait of Jim Morrison. It is signed by Gino Hollander and dated 1975.
Gino Hollander (1924 –2015) is a very important American painter. He began painting in New York City during the abstract expressionist movement after having been a very successful filmmaker. Then he moved in 1962 to Spain where he became internationally known.
His work is honest and emotional; he paints for himself. He has no wish to engage in a dialogue with the viewer. It is for him to paint, for the viewer to view. He refuses to title his paintings. He tells no stories. To him, “there is nothing verbal about a canvas. A painting is simply one way to express a feeling
"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. The art of painting provides me with a constant mirror of my being—both successes and failures, the good moments and bad. I prefer to paint it all as it comes. Painting takes on a rhythm like breathing: loose, tight, whatever. Living and painting become one. I believe in the universality of art’s function, a heritage of involvement of everyone – the youngest to the oldest, the artist, the viewer. A subliminal communication of feelings about the human condition. My paintings are expressly directed to evoke an emotional reaction from the viewer." - Gino Hollander, 2010.
Gino has his work displayed in more than forty museum and public collections.
