The painters in this exhibition all paint figures, landscapes and still lives. In fact, they create their own environment. The puzzling thing with all the painters is there is an object lightly out of place or twisted and yet, there is a great balance that they share. There are surprises in most of the paintings that are hidden that one has to look for. There are in fact a myriad of conventional and unconventional imagery. With this international exhibition of the great polish artist Agnieszka Nienartowicz, to the more traditional paintings by Italian painter Ilaria Rosselli Del Turco Lais who gives us a look into the past and yet, brings us into the contemporary world. Whereas, Troy Dalton is much closer to the realist traditional painters such as Baltus. Dalton’s slightly surrealistic take on some of his paintings take us to both the surrealist and the post-modern painters Avery Palmer and Alex Reisfar. The younger Palmer and Reisfar seem to be pushing the boundaries with surrealism and creating their own beasts that do not exist in our world. Like Rosselli, the British painter Tessa Coleman, who is an expert in painting figures in the city, takes us back to a more academic way of painting and yet, is always involved in a different color scheme that doesn’t exist in nature.
