Anniversary Artist Lecture Series Presents T.L. Solien 

When: Thu., Jan. 27, 6:15 p.m. 2011
Price: free
277-7403
Most of painter T. L. Solien's work pairs a muted palette with bold collisions of pop-culture artifacts and expressionistic abstraction. A given Solien canvas might copy Jean Dubuffet, steal a title from Monet and include the likeness of Disney’s Goofy before giving way to frantic mark-making as a scene spills over the edge of the canvas. Full of both dark humor and free-floating feelings of alienation, Solien's paintings are capable of conveying the absurd while remaining formally compelling. The artist's talk at Watkins tonight is the last installment in their 125th Anniversary Artist Lecture Series. If you don't want to wait for another century-and-a-quarter to hear a contemporary master like Solien gab, you better get down there tonight.
