Daniel Gerwin (MFA '08) in the Fleisher Art Memorial's Wind Challenge Exhibition, Opening September 6th

Daniel Gerwin uses trompe l’oeil painting to simulate wood grain, alluding to floors, doors, window frames, and furniture. In some cases he paints directly onto salvaged domestic items such as rocking chairs, mirrors, and dresser drawers, using painted marks to transform these objects, like insects isolated in amber. Gerwin does not seek to illustrate or directly describe our relationship to the domestic, but rather to abstract it. In his work, trompe l'oeil folds in on itself to become a language of imagination and psychological resonance.

Opening: September 6th, 6-8
