This event has ended.

Seven of the paintings in this exhibition depict North American mammals in their natural environments. The animals are presented in meticulously painted Scottish tartan fur, a direct reference to Magritte and Landers’s own pursuit of artistic freedom. The tartan patterns, initially a system of tribal identification, now not only identify the work as one by Sean Landers, but also embody his intent to protect these animal paintings from indifference on their journey through time by rendering them visually anomalistic. In addition, Landers portrays his animals as cute and charming thereby endearing them not only to people in the present, but also to future generations. Accompanying these animals is an eighth painting of a snowy Aspen tree forest at nighttime.
