Ive really been anticipating this exhibition, says Plus owner Ivar Zeile. You never know where an artist is going to go if the work will get better and get more challenging and risky. In this case, it has, in a hyper-real fashion that goes so far as to boldly intimate the actual physical structure beneath the skin of each subject. But theres even more there to pique Zeiles interest: The people depicted in the paintings are either in Denver or have passed through Denver at one time or another, including of couple of current and past artists at the gallery, he adds. Its nice to show work that has a connection to the local audience.
