Mark Tambella is presenting a continuing group of new paintings seeking to locate the aesthetics of objects in the dream space of painting. Whether from composed still life of arbitrarily selected objects to arbitrarily selected landscape; each seen and selected and painted from multiple vantage points there remains the qualities of a group of imagined small scenes. Using various painting translucencies to layer these changing colors and forms over each other, sometimes scraping away these effects, the exposed light and dark markings produce a movement which animates these scenes with sympathetic characters.
The commissioned fountain sculpture by Bruce Gagnier based on the theme of “Moses striking the Rock “ is on display from September 26, 2013 until January 26, 2014 in the Rotunda of the
