Figurative Paintings

These rich, complex works bring together influences from East and West, ancient and modern. The eye vibrates between flat shape and 3-dimensional form. Bold brushwork and passages of saturated Fauvist color are juxtaposed with the subtler harmonies and decorative patterning of Persian miniature painting. In this work Furchgott explores the multiple planes of existence, both inner and outer, on which we live.
