Robert Kushner’s exhibition at Carl Solway Gallery includes paintings from 2010 to the present, a small selection of prints and The Four Seasons, four large-scale paintings recently removed from Cincinnati’s Tower Place. The works feature his signature botanical subjects, often set against backgrounds of richly textured geometric patterns.
In 1990, Robert Kushner was commissioned to create paintings for the atrium of Tower Place, the shopping mall adjacent to the Carew Tower. Completed in 1930, the Carew Tower is one of Cincinnati’s finest buildings from the Art Deco era. The mall was a busy center of downtown activity until many of the stores moved to the suburbs. The Tower Place building was recently sold and Carl Solway Gallery was able to rescue the four paintings, 9 feet by 27 feet each.
