Monday’s Romance Is Tuesday’s Sad Affair

Talley Dunn Gallery is pleased to announce Monday’s Romance Is Tuesday’s Sad Affair, an exhibition of new work by Dallas-based artist Ted Kincaid. The exhibition opens Saturday, August 29th with a reception from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. and will be on view through Saturday, October 24, 2015.

With his new series of tondo thunderhead clouds and waterfall imagery, Kincaid reconsiders depictions of landscape and its conventions by digitally dissecting and selectively reassembling the work of painters Giovanni Bellini, Hans Memling, and Frederic Edwin Church. By layering vibrantly colored, solvent-based inks on canvas the artist is able to convey a graceful shifting of tones from dark to light and transition from surface to depth.

In works such as “Tondo Thunderhead 723 (Bellini 2),” Kincaid captures the subdued palette of Venetian Renaissance painter Giovanni Bellini with a sampling of the simple countryside depicted in Bellini’s “Christ Blessing.” Kincaid moves the landscape of the original source from background to center stage with an interest in creating a sense of the imaginary with his vibrantly colored cloud formations. The artist’s skillful combination of crisp and blurred lines in “Variation on a Waterfall by Church” at times borders on post-painterly abstraction, and Kincaid’s beautiful imagery subtly deconstructs conventional definitions of landscape. Kincaid distorts and blurs his forms to break down any narrative possibility and to emphasize the tension between artifice and reality.
