Gino Hollander (1924 - )
BORN 1924 U.S.A. 1942-1945 U.S.ARMY SKI TROOPS, 10TH MOUNTAIN DIVISION 1950-1960 DIRECTOR AND DOCUMENTARY FILMAKER "I was immersed in filmmaking and yet had a vague feeling of wanting some more direct means of self expression, one that would not have the men, money and materials that films involved." NYC was alive with the excitement of abstract expressionism and one of our film hangouts was the Cedar Bar. I caught the disease and immersed myself in both paint and painter's image having decided that if I were to start a new career at this late date and with a family of four children and one on the way . I had better just paint and learn by doing which is what I have been doing for thirty-eight years What I want out of and for my paintings is emotional expression both for me and the viewer, each in our own way. 1960-1962 My studio and the first Hollander Gallery, Bleeker St, Greenwich Village, NYC 1962 Move to south of Spain with my family 1963-1990 Numerous one-man shows throughout Europe England, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain. During those 28 years living and painting in Spain my paintings were exhibited in the following Hollander Galleries. 1962-1990 Marbella, Spain 1962-1969 Bleeker St., N.Y.C. 1964-l973 Madison Ave., NYC 1970-1980 West Broadway, Soho 1970-1980 Toronto, Canada 1968-1978 Mount St., London 1973-1982 Circle Fine Arts became my exclusive agent for U.S.A. and yearly there were one man shows in a number of their galleries. At our home in Spain, Cortijo de las Yeguas, in l982 Barbara and I established the Museo Hollander to exhibit our major collection of Spanish antiquities and artifacts spanning 20,000 years. The museum gained world-wide recognition for the quality and presentation of the collection and was viewed by more than 50,000 visitors. It was awarded the bronze medal on the HRH Juan Carlos honors list for it's major contribution to Spanish tourism. I donated the Museo Hollander to the Spanish Government in l990.

Nemiroff James Griffin White Museum ARTISTS STATEMENT I paint for the oneness of the moment the medium can allow - the immediacy of expression. I believe in a universality of arts function, a heritage of involvement of everyone - the youngest to the oldest the artist and the viewer - a subliminal communication of feelings about the human condition. My paintings are expressly directed to evoke an emotional reaction from the viewer.
