Imperfections By Chance: Paul Feeley Retrospective, 1954–1966

Imperfections By Chance: Paul Feeley Retrospective, 1954–1966, explores the legacy of the modernist artist Paul Feeley (1910-1966), calling him ‘a towering figure in postwar American modernism’.


Feeley’s paintings and sculptures, characterised by their bright colors and undulating forms, are often poised between representation and abstraction. Feeley held an influential position as a professor at Bennington College in Vermont, with resulting associations with key figures in the New York art scene such as Lawrence Alloway, Jackson Pollock, Clement Greenberg and of course Helen Frankenthaler, who had been his student. This inspiring exhibition is accompanied by a richly illustrated catalogue including texts from curators and critics.
