A sublime sense of texture, color and line inhabits an extensive selection of recent abstract work by Claverack-based Claude Carone at the John Davis Gallery in Hudson. Though small in dimension, the uniformly white-framed pieces in drenched polymer and other media have a powerful effect that is greatly more than decorative. The work clearly reveals the sensibilities and skills of a mature artist who doesn’t pander to contemporary tastes but manages at the same time to put a contemporary spin on abstraction. Mr. Carone, of course, is the son of the late and great Nicolas Carone, one of the early eminences of the Abstract Expressionist movement, so it is hardly surprising that his feeling for abstraction is so exquisitely honed. Carone, however, might argue with fitting into this category at all. Indeed, on closer inspection, some of the pieces have titles that suggest a subtle representational element in his work, both mysterious and moving. “Angel” (2013), for example, depicts—to my eye at least—exactly that, though whether Carone had such an intention at the outset, or whether he titled it subsequently, only he knows. On the other hand, one of the “Untitled” pieces, of which there are several with seemingly no representational element, looks to me like a Hirschfeld-like riff on art-making: a paintbrush in full action. Either way, that Carone consistently brings such refinement and energy to his work is refreshing and stimulating, both visually and intellectually.
