EXPRESSING FEELINGS

Gene Gould said that what he tried to express in his paintings, as directly as possible, was his personal feelings about the world.

 

Interesting examples can be seen in his love of classical music. One day, coming back from a concert, he mentioned how fascinated he had been by the expression on the face of one of the cellists. This led him to quickly make a small, nearly humoristic painting illustrating that.

 

 

"Into the music",oil on canvas (2001), 9" x 12"

     

Similarly, in this other music-related painting, it is clear that what Gene Gould was trying to depict was the focus and concentration on the pianist's face.

POIGNANT EMOTIONS are strikingly expressed in other paintings of Gene Gould such as:

 
     
Grief (circa 1965)   Heros (2001)   Clown (2002)   Stressed (circa 2020)
