Wildwood Park for the Arts announces Art in the Park – Developed and Less Finished: Maintaining Life with artist L. K. Sukany. The exhibit will run from August 21 – September 20. Sukany uses developed compositions and less finished paint applications to depict mysterious scenes of figures in interiors maintaining life. These memory-inspired works do not have obvious narratives but are based on a collection of moments in time. The themes of maintenance, celebration, conversation, and leisure use formal elements of figures in interiors and perspective for emphasis. The individual pieces are not intended to portray real life, but to show figures in a shared physical and mental space. Many of the pieces blur the line between depiction and magic realism so that the events can seem weird, magical, or wonderful to a spectator.
A free opening reception will be held on Friday, August 21 from 6 – 8pm. Foods for the reception have been generously provided by Whole Foods Market. Live music for the reception will be provided by Who Knows a Robot and The Damsels in Distress.
Wildwood’s gallery hours are Monday – Friday: 10am-4pm, Saturday and Sunday: 12-4pm.
