Alex Katz, Reggie Burrows Hodges and Jonas Wood

Alex Katz

“A lot of people want to paint something timeless, but I paint the immediate present.”
– Alex Katz

Alex Katz has been inspired by what is right in front of him. For the last seven decades he has followed his own sense of style. His works defy categorization. He paints figures, landscapes and flowers, using colors that might seem impossible from another artist’s brush, but become sophisticated and serene when they flow from Katz’s.
