Gary Komarin

Gary Komarin (b. 1951) was born and raised in New York City. At Boston University, Komarin studied under the abstract expressionist Philip Guston, and he has been influenced by Guston’s visually layered, softly formal combination of drawing and painting throughout his own successful career as an artist. The son of a Czech architect and a Viennese writer, Komarin creates work that is abstract and utilizes unusual materials, such as house paint and industrial canvas tarps. Komarin has been a recipient of the Joan Mitchell Prize in Painting, and he has also been awarded The Edward Albee Foundation Fellowship, The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Grant, and a New York Foundation for the Arts grant. Komarin’s work has appeared in numerous solo exhibitions at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Newark Museum, the Montclair Museum, and The New Orleans Center for Contemporary Arts, amongst others. He currently lives and works in Roxbury, Connecticut.
