Conversion of Paul: (above) is characteristic, with Illig juxtaposing a womans legs, a man lying on the floor (perhaps struck blind like the Apostle Paul) and a group of lady riveters standing before a passage from Nude Descending a Staircase,: by Marcel Duchamp. Other paintings also play with art history, as well as with masculine imagery and fantasy.
In a completely different mood are the intimate abstracts by Keith Wood in a tiny, self-titled exhibition in the Treasure Chest. In Keith Wood, the artist combines half a dozen oil pastel drawings from his Songbook: series with three meticulous paintings. While the drawings are only vaguely related to the paintings, they share a linear approach to composition.
These three solos display the anything-goes mentality of acceptable contemporary styles, although they show just a handful of the diverse range of approaches being embraced by painters right now -- and for the foreseeable future.
