Opening reception: Thursday, November 21, 2013

This exhibition is comprised of approximately 25 two- and three-dimensional works that are inspired by historic references and presented to the viewer with a twist of whimsy and surprise.

Hinged on traditional works of art, the pieces in this exhibition take the viewer to to next level of engagement through the artist’s infusion of humor and imagination. The craftmanship of these works is unparalleled, each one highly detailed and thoughtfully executed.

Included in the exhibition are unique oil on canvas works that combine more than one historic reference. The duality of the work alters the subject matter, allowing the viewer to create a new perspective on universally recognizable works of art. Click here for press release.
