Image of Day, May 5, 2012

By Donna Poulton

While Jeff Pugh’s interest in agrarian scenes echoes that of his famous mentor, Gary Ernest Smith, he has created his own unique feel and style. While Smith’s Post-Regionalist work evokes nostalgia for a lifestyle that is rapidly fading from rural America, Pugh’s work is pre-reflective. His minimal forms and reductive colors place one in the immediacy of the scene. When I see his depiction of cows on a field, I feel like yelling “Moo.”
