Stuart Disston: What Lies Beneath

Quogue Gallery is pleased to present “Stuart Disston: What Lies Beneath”. This exhibition features fourteen mixed media paintings by the artist. While Disston is better known as an accomplished architect and senior partner of Austin Patterson Disston Architects based in Quogue and Norwalk, Connecticut, he is also a fine artist with a rich history in the craft. Disston’s paintings explore the themes of fragility, temporality, and the ability to endure through his complex painting surfaces, often incised, ripped or torn, or, in contrast, cut with surgical precision. Heat releases a flow of pigment, melded into the grey toned skin of the surface layer. The result is an array of beautiful color, worn and torn grasses, tree bark, sky and ocean, colorful confetti from a slashed surface, and precisely cut fall leaves. These works are an ode to his beginnings as an artist, and importantly, an ode to his journey to present day.
