Howard Nathenson is a nationally exhibited painter and photographer. His paintings have been included in the Whitney Museum’s exhibition “Extraordinary Images” and the prestigious Whitney Biennial. His landscape vignette drawings have been featured at Artist’s Space, NY, and his black and white photograph series “Chiaroscuro” received an exhibition at the Morris Museum, NJ. In 2018 a collection of his work was shown at the Carter Burden Gallery, NY. His work is in the collection of the Neuberger Museum, the Brodsky Museum, the Bergen Museum, the University of Denver and many private and public collections. Nathenson has been honored with numerous awards including a New Jersey State Fellowship for the Arts.
His imagery embraces symbolic photographic realism, abstraction, and celebration of the subtle processes and formal constraints of the compositions themselves. Illusionism contrasts with texture, black and white contrasts with color, and combinations of materials suggest imaginary narratives.
