Arthur Polonsky

(Continued Here)


Polonsky’s imagery is a constant tension between the figurative and abstract, between realism and fantasy, between light and darkness, in a symbolic as well as an artistic sense. Both his landscapes and his figurative works have a mystical, emotional resonance, often going beyond the reality of the scene or figure to express a spiritual, other-worldly, sometimes haunted state. Among figurative painters, Polonsky is an authentic visionary. His paintings are expressive of an inner reality, and trance-like, allow us to see beyond the real world of our ordinary experience.

Arthur Polonsky has exhibited widely, in the United States and abroad. He has had numerous solo exhibitions and retrospectives, including several at the Wiggin Gallery of the Boston Public Library, and at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, The Fitchburg Art Museum, Clark University in Worcester, The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury, Brandeis University in Waltham, the Mickelson Gallery, Washington, D.C., the Durlacher Gallery, New York, The Boris Mirski Gallery, Boston, MA, and The Art Complex Museum and the Bumpus Gallery in Duxbury, MA.

His work was included in important retrospective exhibits this past Fall at The DeCordova Museum and at the Boston University Art Gallery, as well as in a ‘then and now’ exhibit at Francesca Anderson Gallery in Lexington of painters who had exhibited at The Shore Gallery (closed since 1962) in Boston.
