DESCRIPTION

THEODORE WADDELL “ROAM”

Maintaining the immense dialogue of Western spaces while giving the viewer a new perspective is one of artist Theodore Waddell’s specialties. Waddell's sophisticated modernist paintings have attracted widespread recognition around the world. Waddell draws a deliberate parallel between his subject and the elements of abstract art: cattle and horses are motifs formally arranged on the flattened and enveloping painted "ground" characteristic of modernism. Waddell is a great inventive landscape painter, thrusting horizon lines to the top of his canvases and at times leaving no focal point or clear defining edges. The paintings are maps of a belief system. Waddell has intensely studied the landscape and he puts forth a visual vocabulary of what he has discovered in his canvases.

Theodore Waddell has also been invited to exhibit in three prestigious regional museums in 2009:

  • The Albrecht-Kemper museum of Art in St. Joseph, Missouri
  • The Fresno Metropolitan Museum in Fresno, CA
  • The Whitney Gallery of Western Art in Cody, Wyoming

Opening Reception: Thursday. January 8th from 6pm to 9pm.

This exhibition runs through Febuary 18th .
