February - 7 March 1999
accomplished as a painter and draughtsman, Allan Mitelman has developed
an art of 'sensibility' whose acheivements are rare, precious, perfectionist
and deliberately resricted in scope. Mitelman's monochrome paintings
isolate and 'produce' specific experiences of colour, and viewers may
find themselves seeming to listen to the colour just as intently as
they look at it.
- 'As painterly
vibratos go, Mitelman's ventures into tremulous iridescent effects are
remarkably discreet and restrained.'
