Robert Kushner's Sail Away (1983) at Dijon's Consortium in ‘National Review’ by Robert Kushner

Thank you, Brian Allen, for visiting 'Pattern, Crime and Decoration' in Dijon, France and writing about it for the National Review. A pleasure to read these lines in amongst all of the other great ones! 
"Robert Kushner’s Sail Away, from 1983, is one of the anchors....It’s a riot of pattern anchored by a pair of nudes in outline. It’s abstract, grand, very attractive, flat as a pancake, or wallpaper, and delicious."

Read the full article about this collection of Pattern and Decoration works at Le Consortium Museum, on view through October 2019.

TENDERNESS AND THORNS
September 1 – September 27, 2015
Hakusasonso Hashimoto Kansetsu Garden and Museum
Kyoto, Japan

I was commissioned to create a large scale installation piece (above), Camellias and Cacti, painted on transparent fabric, measuring 12’x 42′, which will hang freely in the middle of Kansetsu’s Atelier. It will be exhibited, along with a selection of five major works on canvas. I will be at the opening on September 9, the birthday of Kansetsu. The show continues through September 27. If you are in Kyoto, please join me.  The Kansetsu Garden and Museum are not to be missed.

Hashimoto Kansetsu (1883 – 1945) was a Kyoto-born artist who was heavily influenced by Chinese art and culture. His home and gardens in a quiet, old corner of Kyoto, have been turned into a museum and the surroundings provide a tasteful and inspiring backdrop for my work.
