T.L. Solien – The Foreseeable Past

April 21 – May 27, 2017

Opening Reception: Gallery Night, April 21, 5-9pm

T.L. Solien entertains the paradox of “The Foreseeable Past” by imparting a contemporary perspective on classic narrative images from the annals of art history.  A self-described artist of the “absurdist cultural critique,” Solien invites you in with brightly colored compositions filled with farcical figures and fanciful objects.  Once engaged you realize all is not as it seems, you have entered a world where belief turns to disbelief,  the annunciation becomes the renunciation and the course of history is altered.  Paintings, collaged works on paper and mixed media cut-outs will be on view.

T.L. Solien – The Loneliest Gods

September 13 – October 12, 2013

T.L Solien continues his exploration of the theme of westward expansion in this new body of work that includes paintings, works on paper, and sculptures. Solien delves into deep themes of American culture and the history of pioneer settlement, as he merges Ahab’s quest for the white whale with Americans’ quest for the West. Employing a myriad of personal, graphic symbols and eccentric characters, Solien is surreal and entirely original. By examining the lot of the common citizens such as mothers, mechanics, and firemen and portraying them in his singular style, Solien invites us to take a closer look at America’s history.
