Sharon Butler blogs about Eric Aho: An Unfinished Point 
in a Vast Surrounding at the New Britain Museum of American Art, on view through September 11, 2016.

Butler writes: "Aho’s paintings, unfettered by contemporary doubt, evoke the gestural abstraction of the post-war period–think Willem de Kooning meets Joan Mitchell. His ongoing interests in memory, culture, oral and written military history, and art history coalesce into vivid form in an ambitious and resonant project."
