Sanford Wurmfeld: Color Visions 1966 – 2013 celebrates the work of Sanford Wurmfeld, the Phyllis and Joseph Caroff Professor of Fine Arts Emeritus and the Hunter College Art Department Chair from 1978-2006. Wurmfeld is an internationally known painter and a fixture in the New York art world. For decades he has created abstract paintings about color and its affects on human mood and visual perception. Drawing inspiration from Georges Seurat, Josef Albers, Claude Monet, Mark Rothko, and his mentors and colleagues from Hunter College, among others, Sanford Wurmfeld illustrates the psychological effects of color on large-scale canvases. He has pursued a near-scientific inquiry into the perceptual and experiential effects of color while remaining an intuitive painter. With over 60 paintings, sculptures, drawings, and films – many of which have never been exhibited – Sanford Wurmfeld: Color Visions 1966 – 2013 presents the most comprehensive retrospective of his large-scale works from over his fifty-year career. The exhibition provides a unique opportunity to explore Wurmfeld’s groundbreaking examination of three-dimensional color as well as his legacy as a painter.

Sanford Wurmfeld (b. 1942 in Bronx, NY) has exhibited his work worldwide in solo and group exhibitions since the late 1960s. His immersive 360-degree painting Cyclorama has been recently exhibited at the Neuberger Museum of Art; Talbot Rice Gallery, University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom; Karl Ernst Osthaus Museum, Hagen, Germany; and Mucsarnok Kunsthalle, Budapest, Hungary. He has participated in many museum exhibitions, including at the American Academy of Art and Letters, Carnegie Museum of Art, Dayton Art Museum, Kunsthaus Zurich, Long Beach Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Seattle Museum of Art, and Tate Gallery. Wurmfeld has received awards from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, City University of New York, and Dartmouth College. He has also lectured and published widely on the subject of color.
