This event has ended.

New, psychologically compelling paintings by Paul Fenniak, bridge realism and symbolism, posing inevitable and inexorable questions about the events portrayed. Fenniak describes his current body of work in terms of two themes: the unbridgeable gulf between people; and the longing for escape. These themes came together for the artist in a series of recent news items involving people plotting their own kidnappings and one involving a woman stalking her romantic rival. Fenniak also notes that these two themes, to a much lesser degree, are discernible in his own life and in the lives of those around him. Two trips to Iceland, in 2004 and 2006, provided additional source material.
