Press release

The work of three highly talented figurative painters—Steven DiGiovanni (bottom image), John Keefer (top image) and K. Levni Sinanoglu—is featured in the cleverly titled show Three Painters, opening this Saturday at the River Street Gallery within Fair Haven Furniture.

Artists' statements:

K. Levni Sinanoglu:

K. Levni Sinanoglu's work explores the relationship between intimate and monumental spaces. He is particularly interested in geometry and scale, color and light as these unfold memory and intuition. Still life and landscape provide a primary arena for the focus of sensation and the body, meaning and practice.
John Keefer:

John Keefer is a middling oldish artist who lives in New Haven. He makes mainly oil paintings and drawings of various subjects, including—but not limited to—his siblings, offspring, girlfriend, etc.

Steven DiGiovanni:

Steven DiGiovanni's paintings are quite varied as his desires and interests evolve and, as often, devolve. What makes the painting process compelling at the time? And what subjects are worthy of extended attention and effort? These are the questions the artist often asks himself when embarking on a new project.

Three Painters will be on display through June 18. The opening will be held from 5—8 p.m. this Sat., Apr. 23.
