    John Torreano:
    Painting Outer Space/Inner Space, 1989 to Present

    November 7, 2021–February 27, 2022

With the universe as his muse, New York and Sag Harbor-based artist John Torreano (American, b. Flint, Michigan, 1941) combines realism infused with abstraction to create works that conflate time and space. Often mapping out ideas on paper first and expanding in paintings, Torreano has been inspired by the myriad images recorded by the Hubble Space Telescope to create works that contrast the physical with the illusory.
