John Wallace, Higgins Hall 2011

The John Wallace exhibition at Higgins Hall Gallery on the midtown campus February 17 through March 10. Please note that the images here are dated and the show included 60 years of John's works.  The second set of pictures here are from the opening reception for the artist on Thursday Feb. 17th.

Titled “John Wallace – 60 years of Painting” the exhibition has representative paintings from a decades long artistic career. Although somewhat different in scale and scope, these works show a remarkable consistency in their figuration, use of metaphor, and narrative content:
“…Wallace is nothing if not a consummately sophisticated painter, capable of producing effects which can, and should, be savored for their purely aesthetic qualities. That said, however, it is also true that Wallace…brings to visual art a narrative gift so richly novelistic that one can’t help pondering the possible meanings of his compositions any more than ignore all the subtextual implications in a complex prose passage from Nabakov or Updike. Indeed, Wallace is one of our more intriguing post-modern storytellers…”
