The Cake That Survives Its Eating

"Making art is often a hopeless compulsion to forge a connection with the beauty of the world that will resist forgetfulness and change. The recognition of beauty is an expression of love and we are nourished by the energies so awakened. How does the lover escape the drive for ownership and possession?"


Curator Scott Noel asks this and more as he explores the concept of

"perceptual painting" in this exhibition featuring works by several renowned contemporary realist painters:

Michael ANANIAN
