Sailing Away: New Oil Paintings | April 14 6-9 April 15 10-5 | schliefkevision gallery | New Oil Paintings by Michael Schliefke, using Charons, Sirens and Shipwrecks

Combining a love of art history and the act of painting, ‘Sailing Away’ centers around imagery of Charons, sirens and shipwrecks. Often evoking a lost, solitary tone, these paintings use imagery attached to the sea to address themes of loss, memory and struggle. Boats become figurative vessels, sirens border on luscious, alluring mounds of paint. Skies and seas are full of alarm, dread and wonder.

These oil paintings grew from a series of ink drawings of shipwrecks set against man made
