June 8 – July 9
Dendroica Gallery presents “Abstract Impressions” – new work by Jeff Mihalyo, a Seattle-based artist. Known for his mastery of multiple mediums and styles, Mihalyo’s current exhibit is a series of abstract paintings. This new set of paintings offer formalist compositions that use depth and focus to convey subjects in dimensional space without representationalism. These compositions present worlds made from ideas as much as interwoven shapes.
Mihalyo’s international art career spans over a quarter of a century, and he is known for creating everything from large-scale fantastical flowing and glowing landscapes (sometimes including levitating cities) to video installations where his bearded visage overpowers the screen, to cast-paint objects.
“[T]he artist lavishes attention on natural designs such as fractals, spirals, textures, and the intricate geometries of rock fractures—all patterns that appear throughout his art and lend an underlying impression of realism to the most dreamlike of tableaux.” – Elisa Mader for AEQAI.com:
