Michael Noland – After the Garden

September 7 through October 5, 2012

Art historian Jim Yood describes Michael Noland‘s work as: “Intense. Obsessive. Determined. Dramatic. Processing reality through his patient translation of the real through design.” New gouache and oil paintings of frenetic creatures and chimerical landscapes express Noland’s healthy respect for nature. Having grown up in Oklahoma’s Tornado Alley and spending much of his adult life in the Midwest, Noland’s paintings embody a spirit of place pulsating with glowing plants and animals.
