FREE ADMISSION (Reception for the Artist: THU, APR 11 from 6-8PM; Art Exhibition: APR 11-MAY 25)

Michael Brennan has an eye for absurdity and a hand so adept with a brush that his oil paintings are often initially mistaken for photography, revealing their virtuoso command of impasto only on careful examination. Combined with an encyclopedic command of art history, these talents make the implausible palpable, fulfilling his childhood hero Salvador Dali’s prescription to “make of surrealism something as solid, complete and classic as the works of museums.” Modernism is pleased to present forty-eight of Brennan’s brazenly original art historical pastiches in “48 Squared.”
