GREGORY AMENOFF is a painter who lives in New York City and Ulster County, New York. He is the recipient of numerous awards from organizations including the American Academy of Arts and Letters, National Endowment for the Arts, New York State Council on the Arts and the Tiffany Foundation. He has had over fifty one-person exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the United States and Europe. His work is in the permanent collections of more than thirty museums, including the Whitney Museum of America Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Whether in woodcut or oil, Amenoff captures the brutality and indifference of the natural world without sacrificing a controlled and deliberate hand; while some let the brush lead their stroke, Amenoff is always the one in charge.
