TL Solien - Forest Fighters / Black Eye Joke

September 13 - October 12

Madison-based artist TL Solien became a fixture in the realms of Neo-Expressionism, Neo-Surrealism, and New Image Histories. Since the late ’70s, Solien’s practices have been linked to the continuing evolution of figural painting through his compositions of impeccable, doleful narratives charged with signs, symbols, and tropes mimicking socio-political culture. 

Solien's new body of work, "Forest Fighters/Black Eye Joke," continues this tradition by pulling viewers into his disquieting orbit of sardonic still lifes, landscapes, and portraiture.
