DAN TREADO / Addison/Ripley Fine Art

opening reception
Saturday, May 1st, 5-7pm

Addison/Ripley Fine Art presents an uncompromising selection of new works by Washington artist, Dan Treado. This work continues to surprise and delight with the artist's signature serial imagery;  layers of color, light as air, add dreamy associations, an impossible depth and lush surface.  Appropriated samples from selected illustrations and texts in some of the works provide tense contrast.  In others, a crazy quilt of disparate imagery 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 maturity, complexity and solid accomplishment.  They may "request quiet" but they shout and crackle with energy.
