Last Chance to View: DAN TREADO, REQUESTING QUIET

DAN TREADO REQUESTING QUIET
May 1 - June 5, 2010

Free Dirt, 2010, oil on canvas, 20 x 36 inches

This work continues to surprise and delight with the artist's signature serial imagery; layers of color, light as air, add dreamy associations and an impossible depth to the lush surfaces.  In some of the paintings, appropriated samples from selected illustrations and texts provide tense contrast.  In others, a crazy quilt of disparate organic images is woven together by this talented painter.  At once cryptic and mesmerizing, the paintings in this third exhibition by the artist at Addison/Ripley demonstrate a rich complexity and accomplished maturity.  They may "request quiet" but they shout and crackle with energy.
