Midwest Paint Group and Invited Guests: Self Portraits

Jan 26Apr 8, 2021

The Midwest Paint Group is an association of American Midwestern painters committed to “Post Abstract Figuration.” The label comes from New York painter Gabriel Laderman, an early exponent of the return to figurative art that followed the dominance of abstract art in the mid-20th century.

The exhibition ranges from bust portraits against a neutral ground to portrayals that incorporate evocative interior or landscape spaces, and beyond this to a few paintings in which the artist is not represented literally, but instead indirectly through allusive objects or motifs.

Midwest Paint Group and Invited Guests: Self-Portraits exhibition features self-portraits by 12 Midwest Group painters alongside an equal number of self-portraits by guest artists.
