“Double Takes” is a show of large, vivid paintings and the small studies that inspired them. We see the dramatic way scale and composition alter the nature of the images, as work done in haste to capture a beam of sunlight or to survive the Montana winter is reconsidered in the warmth and deliberation of the studio.
Levey’s bold transformations present impressions of landscapes and still lifes in Maine, Montana and Maryland.
