Sub merged: escaping the tyranny of realism
March 12 • 1:00 pm - April 28 • 5:00 pm• Free
New work by Fall Creek painter Jean Denis continues at the Tronson Gallery of Contemporary Art (740 Main Street, Springfield) through April 28. Denis studied painting at Southern Illinois University and worked in the San Francisco area for many years before moving to Oregon, where she endeavors to express a feeling of connection and spirit in her art. “My philosophy of art is that each artist’s work should be as different as each person, which of course happens anyway,” she says. “Over the past year or so, I have been wanting more from my paintings. Something has shifted beyond the outside image. Instead, I want to show what it is that moves me. What shaft of light or translucency or bend of limb, which indicates weight and strain and effort and life, draws me and begs to be portrayed.” The gallery is open 1-4 pm Tuesday through Saturday.
