ATHENS, GA.- The Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia hosts the exhibition “Cityscapes by Ben Aronson” May 4 to June 30, 2013. The exhibition showcases 17 paintings by American figurative painter Ben Aronson (b. 1958) that depict both architectural and pedestrian scenes.

Aronson captures fleeting moments and personal memories in his depictions of city life. His paintings feature interplay between light and dark colors, highlighting movement and energy in the compositions.

“Aronson’s energetic painterly style creates a balance between description and abstraction while also highlighting the observance of the underlying geometry of forms that make up the bustling city surroundings,” said Katherine Hefner, intern in the department of American art and curator of the exhibition. Hefner said his painting style provides the viewer with a “characterization of the emotional temperament of the city.”

Aronson received his master of fine arts degree in painting from Boston University in 1982. He has received numerous awards throughout his career and has exhibited his works of art nationally and internationally. His expressive style was influenced by abstract artists in the Boston Expressionist School and Bay Area School such as Richard Diebenkorn, Willem de Kooning, Jack Levine, Franz Kline and his father, David Aronson.
