"Idiot Sketches" - new paintings
by Sholem Krishtalka
Opening Reception: April 20, 7-10pm
Idiot Sketches is a suite of paintings that muse on the idea that our lives possess a kind of transcendence; it offers a way of looking at and inhabiting our own mundane world so that we are surrounded by the promise of sublimity. At its most polemic, the series is an argument for a kind of aestheticism: that even (or perhaps, especially) at our most mundane, our lives are carriers for (and signifiers of) the grandiose, the operatic, and the sublime.
