New Paintings
from Nature


June–September 2018


I have been enchanted by Florida’s landscapes, especially the Everglades and the Keys. In the last ten years, while returning to Florida, I also went farther south, to Panama, Costa Rica, and Bermuda where I realized how dynamic and fragile these diverse ecosystems are.


These paintings are an ode and witness to the ravishing gift of our world.

M'AHL, a component of the site specific sculptural installation I created in 2011 as part of Embodied Light: 9-11 in 2011 at the Educational Alliance in New York, will be included in the upcoming exhibition "Rendering the Unthinkable" opening at the 9/11 Museum on September 12, 2016.

Tobi Kahn, M'AHL, 2011, acrylic paint on wood, 80 inches x 42 inches x 5 inches

This floor relief is comprised of thousands of wood remnants from pieces created after September 11. When viewed from an elevated perspective, it evokes the view of the city skyline from the South Tower's Top of the World observatory. Kahn's studio has been in Long Island City since 1978, where he witnessed the attacks from his rooftop.


This permanent installation, commissioned by Auburn Seminary in New York, was designed for their new collaborative learning space for leaders of faith and moral courage.

The Phillips Colllection has recently acquired a second painting by Tobi Kahn.

"Untitled" from the white windows series, created in 1977 while Kahn was studying for his M.F.A. at Pratt Institute. It was first shown in the solo exhibition "Tobi Kahn: Wall Fragments, Paintings and Photograph", Fordham University Gallery at Lincoln Center, New York, 1979.
