Howard Kanowitz

Emerging from the movement to redefine realism in the 1960s, Howard Kanovitz's paintings balance exacting elements of the photorealistic with the ambiguity of perception from a personal perspective. Though he bases much of his work on photographs, even incorporating slide projection technology into his practice, his aim is not to reproduce a copy of an image. Rather Kanovitz seeks to point out how unreliable our own visual information actually is, taking our familiar, everyday assumptions and exposing their underlying instability. His work is in the collections of the Whitney Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and was exhibited in Documentas 5 and 6 in Kassel, Germany.
