What Lies Beneath at the Parthenon 

A Landscape of the Mind

A Landscape of the Mind
This large traveling show features 39 small paintings and collages by English artist John Kingerlee. Kingerlee's work is alternatively figurative and abstract and many times includes aspects of both within his deep, painterly surfaces. The work in the show is divided into categories of “Grids,” “Heads” and “Landscapes”, but it's not quite that simple. The subjects of Kingerlee's paintings range from the people and places of Ireland's West Cork countryside to the mean streets of Morocco, but the content of an individual piece seems to include much of the artist's own fashioning of subconscious connections, transforming his paintings into expressionistic works that have been compared favorably with heavy hitters such as Twombly and Rothko.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Starts: Nov. 14. Continues through Feb. 6, 2009
