Other Worlds: Inka Essenhigh
War is Only Half the Story
Both on view through January 19, 2020

Other Worlds features work by painter Inka Essenhigh. Essenhigh’s painted visions are richly colored distorted fables peopled with archetypes, sprites, and anthropomorphized nature. The imagery is imbued with a sense of a collective unconscious and mischievous narrative that makes its way into each landscape, building, and figure. As she describes it, her mythologies strive for “the feeling of an inner vision” captured during the witching twilight hours.

On view in the Lobby Gallery:
Hidden City by Valeri Larko, through November 17, 2019

Hidden City features the plein-air landscape paintings of artist Valeri Larko. The overlooked sites that Larko selects for her landscapes are places that many people never see. Larko is drawn to the abandoned and decaying structures around the fringes of the city, urban waterways, and graffiti-laced walls. “Each site has its own story to tell and through patient observation acquired over months of paintng on location, I work to bring that story to life and to capture the visual poetry of these places.”
