TIIT RAID RETROSPECTIVE: Paintings 1966-2020

JAMES W HANSEN GALLERY

Since 1997, after 35 years of doing abstract work, Tiit Raid started painting landscapes based on photographs of the pond and creek area adjacent to his land in Fall Creek, Wisconsin. “I’m interested in images that are representational from a distance and become more abstract when viewed intimately. I want to create images that are rich in color and detail. The basic objective, as Robert Hughes wrote, is “to slow up the eye and encourage, beyond the quick look, a slow absorption.”
