Robert Kushner | DC Moore Gallery | ARTFORUM, February 2013

“Since the 1980s, Robert Kushner has used flowers as his signature motif, rendering leaves and blossoms in outrageously lush colors and against complex, geometric backgrounds…. Kushner’s work attests to beauty’s fleeting nature and to the cycle of birth and death. Draining the blossoms of color, he accepts the flowers’ fragility and gently underscores a moment suspended between these two  states.”
