Looking Upward, a solo exhibition by Ivan Fortushniak, Art Department, is on display at the Manifest Research Gallery and Drawing Center. Curated by Tim Parsley, the show runs from December 10 through January 7.
Fortushniak’s work is heavily influenced by early modern American painters Albert P. Ryder, George Inness, and Winslow Homer. He said the motivation behind his recent work is to convey the dire state of man and its need for what the gospel offers. Some of these paintings convey biblical references through collaged material from art historical texts while others use appropriated figures from Winslow Homer.
