           Elder Gallery acquires the Plansky Collection

Paintings and drawings created by Carl Plansky have been acquired by Elder Gallery and portions of the collection are beginning to be shown around the nation in galleries and museums.

Bordering on abstraction, Plansky’s paintings evoke the innate tension between stability and movement. Applying paint with large brushes, rags, and a plasterer’s trowel, Plansky used brash, voluptuous strokes to build up his paint so that certain areas of his paintings are thickly coated while others are almost bare. The activated surface of the canvases works to unsettle any fixed, stationary view of his work. Every piece invites the viewer’s eye to wander freely after each fluid motion.

Contact the gallery for images and information or visit www.carlplansky.com for more details.
