Howard Ziff Present Tense at Lichtundfire Gallery

As an abstract artist my intention is to Interpret what I see, whether in nature or man made, and cast away any visual or emotional boundaries and deal with what I feel are the basic elements of life as we live it. I am particularly interested in combining past, present and future because I believe in the fourth dimension of time and I endeavor to reflect that in my work. It goes beyond a continuum so it only exists for me in the present tense even though it combines all remembrance.

While my recent shows at Lichtundfire in New York’s Lower East Side gallery district included both black and white and color paintings my main interest is again to ask where this all came from and was there only black which is actually a color of course or white which is the absence of color and perhaps the true beginning.

Hopefully I can make art that will engage us, make us imagine on our own and perhaps see things through a different lens.

Please enjoy my paintings and watch for new work as it appears.
