SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Lawrence Ferlinghetti creates “Future Woman,” by drawing on the vision of a passionate male artist. At 94, with his seventh solo exhibition that opened May 30th at George Krevsky Gallery, he shares with us a wide range of lively and expressionistic impressions of the female form. Working from the model in his Hunter’s Point studio, he uses splashes of color against a framework of his black and white visual vocabulary. The human figure has come to dominate his mature art.

“In 20th century art, the image of woman was constantly under attack, from Picasso’s two-faced women to De Kooning’s merciless portraits, to the latest tagger’s decimation.” Ferlinghetti wrote recently, “Women’s liberation movements freed women from conventional restraints, but also dethroned her from the pedestal where she had always been seen as the embodiment of pure beauty and mystery.”

With the advice and counsel of Diane Roby, the artist’s archivist, George Krevsky Gallery has assembled a dramatic selection of over 30 artworks, on paper and canvas that truly reflect the humor and intellectual insights of Ferlinghetti’s mind. As someone who has catalogued Ferlinghetti’s visual art, Roby is quite familiar with the expanse of his recurring thematic material. She points out, “He ponders questions of human existence and aspirations.” Sexual and sensitive to relationships, often gritty, he shares his view of “Future Woman,” a Fine Art vision by one of San Francisco’s most beloved and iconic Postmodern Expressionist Masters.

Ferlinghetti’s art is included in numerous private and public collections including the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the diRosa Foundation, and the Francesco Conz Archive in Verona, Italy.
