    UNSETTLED PLAINS | CLARE DOVETON, JEREMY ROCKWELL, AND KYLE GODDARD
    OPENING FIRST FRIDAY JUNE 5 2015 | 5:00PM-9:00PM

    Weinberger Fine Art is proud to present Unsettled Plains, a group exhibition featuring the work of Clare Doveton, Jeremy Rockwell, and Kyle Goddard.  These regional artists explore boundaries, deconstruction, history, and landscape with individual work and collaborative projects.

    Clare Doveton obtained her BFA from Parsons School of Art and Design in New York City in 1998. After living and exhibiting on both coasts, she moved her studio to Kansas in 2005. Doveton’s work has been featured in numerous publications and can be found in private and corporate collections internationally. Her vast and meditative paintings capture the rural landscape in an atmospheric fog of memory and impression.

    Where Doveton is etherial and expressive, Jeremy Rockwell is deliberate and active. Well known for his large scale computer key portraits, the Lawrence based mixed-media artist often begins a piece with an overtly physical act. Whether he is smashing a keyboard, spattering ink or leaving a canvas exposed to the elements, these techniques “break the ice” of dialogue between the artist and his work. Both Doveton and Rockwell value the element of surprise in their individual artistic processes, making them natural collaborators. In their collaborative work Rockwell manipulates the surface of a canvas prior to Doveton’s paint application, then completes the work with three-dimensional wire script.

    1. Fall from Grace 72x58 (1)Kyle Goddard, a recent Kansas transplant was born and raised in the Greater Jackson Area of Mississippi. At the age of 17, Kyle joined the Army Guard in which he served for nine years with one deployment in Afghanistan. Though the military is not traditionally thought of as an artistic environment, the use of repetition and organization would leave an impression. Goddard describes his work as a process of deconstruction, wherein he finds satisfaction in working with concrete experiences rather than abstract ideas. Goddard received his B.F.A. in painting from the University of Southern Mississippi and received a State Fellowship for his work in 2013.

    “A true affinity of a homeowner can be identified on first glance.  Such is the case of the Shermans’ vast and varied art collection, a masterful mine containing the entire spectrum-still life to abstract.  Hunt Slonem’s black and white Abe Lincoln painting almost shares a secret with the room.”

  • Lincoln

    Lincoln (blue)

    One of America’s greatest presidents and revolutionaries has become sexy in 2012. From vampire hunter to Steven Spielberg muse, the great Abe’s more famous than ever. But you won’t just find  America’s 16th president on the silver screen. Weinberger Fine Art has an exquisite selection of Lincoln portraits painted by Hunt Slonem. Jewels on the gallery walls, each Lincoln has a unique spirit, vivaciousness and distinct artistic techniques. Hunt Slonem mined the image of Lincoln during  commemorations of his bicentennial in 2009, taking into account a wide range of historical information from public records and private knowledge gleaned from personal encounters with the president’s spirit through channelers.  Slonem’s Lincolns are multilayered, even contradictory, which seems in alignment with the 21st century’s openness towards pan-cultural, pan-global alternatives to public truth fueled by subjective belief systems and private social practices. You can peruse more Lincoln portraits on our Hunt Slonem paintings page.

    About Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” film: It’s a historical American drama with Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln and Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln. The film is based in part on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s biography of Lincoln, Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, and covers the final four months of Lincoln’s life, focusing on Lincoln’s success in January 1865 to have the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution pass the House of Representatives. You can watch the trailer here.
