Conrad Bercovici Abbott

by Robert Sievert


The Aggressor

A memorial exhibit for Conrad Bercovici Abbott (1945-2001) was held at the Westbeth Gallery. Works from out his lifetime were on view His paintings were evidence of a deep lifelong commitment to painting as a form of human expression.

Mostly figures, his work was awkwardly drawn, things didn't quite fit together, but there was something else. Throughout this work there is a powerful brooding, a true expressionist voice. His figures and faces talk to us with primitive and primal voices.
