Ken Taber / Lost Boys of Sudan at Square Space in Gallatin 

Hip to Be Square

Hip to Be Square
A veteran feature-film set-construction foreman on movies as diverse as Remember the Titans and Boxing Helena, Ken Taber says in his artist’s statement that he always promised himself he would paint. His inspiration, he says, comes from “the accidental and randomness of unplanned composition” — stains on concrete, lichen on rocks. The abstract gouache painting available for view evokes nothing so much as a polished cross-section of petrified wood, its blonde/dark vertical lines scuffed intermittently by blocky, horizontal pastel strips. Gallatin’s Square Space Gallery hosts an opening reception for his month-long show, which will also give you a chance to see the gallery’s showcase of works by the Lost Boys of Sudan.
