A researcher discovered recently that Edward Hopper copied some of his earliest paintings. No shame in that, just surprise, as artists have a long history of learning likewise. It seems fitting, then, that Terry Rosenberg has created his own spinoffs of Hoppers oeuvre. Meant to be exhibited this fall at the Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center, now delayed until next spring, Rosenbergs seventy pastels reproduce the basic elements of their references, making Automat, Cape Cod Morning, and many others recognizable in form. The same cannot be said for feel: emotionally the two bodies of work are worlds apart, and Rosenbergs gestural strokes and visceral colors make all the difference. Imagine Hoppers subjects crossed with Francis Bacons agonies, then add a dash of the luridness found in Degass brothel scenes. Not exactly pleasant, but maybe thats just what we need, now that Hoppers pictures have become so iconic its hard to really see the anxieties hidden under their surfaces anymore.
