Influenced by traditional American scenes and Chicago Imagism, Michael Noland's gouache paintings mold a vision that is uniquely his own. His paintings of unique animals and plants seem both darkly surreal and amusing as they pulsate with reverberating colors, exaggeration of form, and repetition of line. Read More

The heraldic nature of tattoos has historically tied its imagery to the symbolism of animals. If one could argue that tattoos constitute a sort of “psychic armor” then this imagery and symbolism seems to make complete sense and the pervasiveness of it in tattoo design is understandable. Of course, artists are drawn to animal imagery for a host of reasons, but for this exhibition we decided to focus on animal imagery in the art of tattooists and other artists as a way to think about the possible correlations and overlaps between related practices.
This exhibition will bring together the work of a diverse group of artists, linked primarily by the fact (other than the common subject matter) that I know them all. Large scale pieces from the renowned tattooer Don Ed Hardy, the exquisite hand-colored etchings of Briony Morrow Cribbs, the boldly graphic paintings of New York tattooist Bert Krak and the Japanese inflected works of Milwaukee’s own Jon Reiter will all be part of the mix. – Fred Stonehouse Read More

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. Read More
