Less is More or Less

  • Sep 27, 2016

Please join us this THURSDAY, MARCH 13TH from 7 – 10pm as we welcome back our dear friend and artist Neil Callander for his 2nd exhibition at Goose Barnacle.Neil has exhibited nationally and internationally in group and solo shows, after graduate school he worked as a painter for the artist Jeff Koons in his New York studio. Neil is also a recent recipient of a research grant at the Gullkistan Residency for Creative People in Laugarvatn Iceland. He is currently an Assistant Professor at Mississippi State University. LESS IS MORE OR LESS Narrative is an innate and inescapable fact in realist painting. Neil packs a painting full of cultural and personal references. More indeed feels like more. His compositions are attempts to forcefully organize the clashing pieces of day-to-day living. As more information is added the internal relationships become denser, tighter and more intricate. We invite you to unlock and explore these internal relationships and slowly reveal their true nature.

In a media-riddled world a painting is a stabilizing force.
