Last days to see Linden Frederick's latest exhibition Night Neighbors at Forum Gallery.
From the gallery' press release "Linden Frederick’s paintings in Night Neighbors often seem to set the stage for mysterious psychological narratives. Based on twilight scenes in Belfast, Maine, where Frederick lives and works, the exhibition recalls the stillness and loneliness of Edward Hopper, with whom he is often compared. A theatrical aspect to the work – whereby a human presence is evoked but not revealed – offers a powerful twist to the subject matter. The paintings were inspired by thoughts that the artist had when he and his wife were working on their unfinished home in upstate New York years ago. Frederick recalls “driving past finished homes at night as the lights were coming on and feeling filled with a sense of longing.”
