Textures of Taliesin

June 21, 2018 – August 15, 2018
Walter Wickiser Gallery

Showing of artist Dennis Kleidon’s Taliesin-inspired paintings

Kleidon’s Taliesin series, titled Textures of Taliesin, was inspired by the massive boulders used in the construction of Taliesin West. When Frank Lloyd Wright’s students built the home and school in Scottsdale beginning in 1939, they incorporated boulders from the surrounding McDowell Mountains. Kleidon’s paintings express the earth colors of the boulders and adapt their textures to many hues. Each painting has one or more areas of quick, sure strokes in calligraphy-like images. These powerful, elegant images suggest both the petroglyphs of the Arizona desert and an Asian influence Wright would appreciate.

The New York show will also include paintings from Kleidon’s Unleashed series, an extension of the Taliesin series influenced by the artist’s decades of sailing, and evocative of the turbulence of wind and waves. These paintings unleash the spirit of nature with bold strokes and complex details, where the paint smashes against itself to create a “whitewater” of color.
