In The Darkest Night, a solo exhibition of new works on canvas, wood, and paper by the artist Travis Lindquist, opened in Brooklyn last night.
“Fresh from the successful Goldmine Shithouse exhibition at McCaig Welles and Rosenthal’s new San Francisco location, Lindquist’s emerges with a macabre new collection of mixed media works that delve into the dark recesses of the human condition, exploring his subject’s surrealistic identities. An opening reception for the artist will be held on Friday, October 10, 2008 from 7 to 10 pm, with the exhibition on view through November 10, 2008. For In The Darkest Night, Lindquist has created his own iconography and visual language, reinterpreting rogue leaders, creating haunting, otherworldly portraits. These depictions of anarchists, free masons, cult leaders and followers prompt the viewer to question their mysterious identities. The inherent nature of the human spirit – the duality of good versus evil, light versus dark – is unearthed through subject matter and formalist elements”.
