Paul Resika 1928 —

Biography

"He paints familiar motifs with an auroral candor, stating color as if it were the irreducible determining stuff of reality, as well as the heart's clearest response to nature"- W.S. Piero, Epoch Magazine


Resika works in two ways, from nature and by heart.  
 
The spiritual elevation of color evident in Paul Resika canvases is faithfully grounded in the color theory of his teacher, Hans Hofmann.  Color is the prime mover of Resika's pictorial world, creating all form.  Familiar objects focus into view from a vibrantly hued field, his signature Provincetown piers and ships in the harbor.

The great breadth of subject matter that Paul Resika covers in his paintings is renaissance in scope.  From myth to reality, from Homer to Provence in the South of France, to the  Provincetown Piers, his lively interests are recorded with the eye of a classically schooled artist.  Paul Resika's paint laden brush strokes his canvases romantically, a cluster of half formed figures suggest the definitive groupings of the great David or the starkness of a boat house may suggest a Hofmannesque passage.  In Resika's knowledge and blending of the moods and modes of past painters lies his personal strength.  Resika continues to press the outermost boundaries of the known to produce exciting colloquies between his vision and his viewer.  Paul Resika is very much a painter's painter.

Born in New York City, he began taking painting lessons as early as 9, greatly encouraged by his Russian immigrant mother.  When he was 12 years old  he began taking art classes with Sol Wilson on West 16th street.  As a teenager, Resika had a studio above his father's shop.  Here is where Clement Greenberg brought Leo Castelli to see the work of a precocious young artist.  According to Castelli, it was either 1947 or '48.  Paul remembers that it was the first time he had ever seen someone wearing a camel-hair coat! 

Resika began taking night classes with Hans Hofmann in New York in 1945  when he was 17.  Still only in high school, he already knew where the action was.  In 1947, having finished studying with Ho0fmann, he went to Provincetown for the first time, ostensibly to paint Hofmann's studio walls.  That same year a jury, including Hofmann, Adolph Gottlieb, and Boris Margo, selected work by Resika for New Provincetown '47, a group show at the Jacques Seligmann Gallery NY.  The other artists were Leatrice Rose, Larry Rivers, Wolf Kahn, Roberet Goodnough and Paul Georges.  They were all young , but Resika was the youngest   A year later he had his first one person show at age nineteen, at New York's George Dix Gallery in 1948.  Here is where an already fascinating story becomes more interesting.  After tis initial burst of attention, Resika didn't show again in New York until 1964.  The journey he took between those who exhibitions tells you a lot about Resika's character, both his willfulness and his independence.

Early in 1950, Resika moved to Paris.  From Christmas 1950 to 1952, he lived in Venice and began working like the old masters, particularly Tiepolo and Veronese.  After that, he lived in Rome for a year.  When he returned from Europe he occupied himself painting portrait commissions and trompe l'oeil works for people's homes and 'lived in museums.'  This lasted until 1958, when he started painting outdoors, and he has been doing so ever since.  These early works anticipate Resika's life long preoccupation with light and its relationship to gravity and solid forms.  You might say that the shimmering light and rich color of Venice was beginning to take hold of his senses and imagination.

Resika was now living on Washington Square North, close to the Cedar Bar on 10th street.  All the artists who came over and saw his paintings thought he was crazy.  In the middle of the Abstract Expressionist 'craze', with POP art and Minimalism on the rise, Paul Resika was thinking about Venetian painting.  By the 60's he was again exhibiting and had begun to build a reputation for his landscapes.

Paul Resika spoke with admiration of Andre Derain, William de Kooning, Arshile Gorky  Hans Hofmann.  Resika's knowledge of art is encyclopedic.

He was part of what is now considered the second generation of the New York School-artists who applied abstract expressionist techniques, such as the emphasis on gesture and emotional immediacy to the depiction of representational subject matter.  During the 1950s, Resika traveled in Europe and began developing the series of recurring pared-down, quasi-abstract motifs: piers and harbors, farmhouses, floral still lifes, female figures.  The tradition of French modernist painting, specifically the work of Pierre Bonnard and the French Fauvist painters Matisse and Derain, is strongly evinced in his work.

From 1978 - 1990 Resika chaired the Parsons School of Design MFA program.  He has received numerous grants and awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and election to the National Academy of Design.
