Oil on paper A color invention in the form of the sculptural tree, that enigmatic form that Zeke loved to explore. Oil paints and printing inks were applied with knives and brushes to good effect. “Over the years similar images and forms recur as if each of us possesses a fluid bank of scripts which we never exhaust.” Z.Z. 1980
January, 1980, this would be from a life drawing session either at the Dobbs Ferry Library or the Tarrytown Arts Center. Anyone who practices drawing from the figure knows the difficulty of rendering a tall standing figure.
Oil on linen, this is an unfinished work from 1956 or so, that was too evocative and unusual to ignore. It does contain the elements of a recurring theme in the artist’s work, old age and trees. Under the heavy paint can be seen a bright color scheme from an underlying painting.
