Alan Falk: Ancient Journey, New Direction

The Wise Son, by Alan Falk

An exhibition of 30 paintings and watercolors by contemporary painter Alan Falk is on display  at the Charter Oak Cultural Center, 21 Charter Oak Avenue, Hartford, through May 28.
The works, inspired by diverse Jewish sources, including biblical narratives, prophetic writings, rabbinic commentaries, modern Jewish theology and history have for more than a decade, been the basis for Falk’s commentary on the human condition. Falk has developed an allegorical and poetic language through the use of thematic vibrant color and expressive line.
Married to a rabbinical student serving a congregation, he is immersed in modern Jewish life, symbols and thought that serve as a catalyst for his work. Falk has taught painting and drawing at several colleges of art in his native England, and was represented by major London galleries and included in numerous international exhibitions in the U.K., Europe, and the United States. His work is in numerous public, private and corporate collections in the U.S., Europe and Asia. He is an active member of the New York-based Jewish Art Salon.
