Misha Kligman’s sixth solo exhibition is a body of work consisting of paintings rooted in the landscape as a site of a journey. The paintings position themselves as a space of flux between origin and destination. The road here is used as a transitional place of uncertainty, discovery and danger. Figurative elements are depicted in physical proximity to one another, pointing to the relationship of interdependency and closeness. When children appear in many of the paintings, they serve as reminders of risk and potentiality, revealing the journey’s perilous qualities. The world that the paintings evoke is not a remembered place (as in much of Kligman’s previous work) but one of premonition and imagination.
Join us for an Artist Talk with Misha Kligman the following day, May 11 from 12-1pm. Here we will have the chance to ask Misha about his new work, along with the process and thoughts behind the development of his show.
