Erik Laffer’s Cartography Series

Erik Laffer: Longitude & Latitude 48”x50” Oil on Canvas 2007 At the Amrose Sable Gallery in Albany, New York until May 25, an exhibition of Erik Laffer’s Cartography Series. The Albany Times Union has a review: “[T]he frenetic undercurrents of Laffer’s abstractions seem to strike a chord with our primitive nature, connecting with humankind’s eternal sense of searching. Paintings like ‘Digital Globe’ and ‘Texture’ employ basic forms, but are not superficial. They are primitive, yet fully imbued with the mid-20th century modernist style. If you’re looking for directions from his ‘maps,’ you won’t find any. Instead, you get wonderfully lost.” At right: “Longitude & Latitude,” 2007.
