This event has ended.

Hrehov’s fifth solo exhibition spans ten years of output in oils and charcoal, exploring the development of his signature allegorical realist mode, a meditation on the natural and spiritual world, infused with surrealism and mystery.

When working with oils, Hrehov takes great liberties with color, lending depth and richness, whereas his charcoals are rendered in a labor-intensive pointillist technique, drawing attention to the surface. Architectural structures, statuary, trees and animals populate the work, and become the characters acting out the artist’s multi-layered, metaphorical messages. Hrehov’s compositions eschew perspective, embrace symmetry, and assign equal visual and symbolic weight to their components. The work achieves not only visual balance, but energetic and spiritual balance, providing a transcendent refuge.
