Andrew Hladky: All Ways Knowit What Wer Unner The Skin Only You Don’t Want To See

January 20 – March 7

Kaplan Gallery South

“I make three-dimensional paintings and paint sculptures out of oil paint and bamboo sticks. Intricate bamboo stick structures are combined with worms of paint squeezed directly from the tube to form the body of the painting. Into this delicate and convoluted surface I paint imagery from a wide variety of sources, both personal and commercial. The build up of paint and sticks interacts with and changes the imagery causing it to shift, distort and break apart as you walk around the painting. The body of the painting asserts itself, overwhelming the images clinging to its surface and altering their sentiment.”
