  • Artwork of the Week: "Jupiter" by Allan Pachino Wallace

    03/22/2018
    This week, we highlight one of the pieces currently showing in MUSE, an exhibition curated for Transforming Spaces.  The show juxtaposes work of contemporary artist Allan Pachino Wallace against master artist Brent Malone. This painting, "Jupiter", is a direct response to Malone's "Earth Sea Sky", and at first glance the only similarity one may notice is the posing of both subjects: hands held out to the side, holding flowers, gaze piercing the onlooker strait-on.  Upon closer inspection one notices that Pachino, like Malone, also uses heavy symbolism to connect his figure to nature. The subject cracks out of the (earth) stone, and moves upward into the blue (sky) top part of the composition. Both paintings elevate the feminine with symbolic storytelling. 

  • Artwork of the Week: "Hationary Mural" by Allan Pachino Wallace

  • Artwork of the Week: "Junkanoo Cosmic Dancer" by Brent Malone

    02/22/2018
    This week, we highlight the artwork of the late Brent Malone
    in preparation for our upcoming exhibition for Transforming Spaces, MUSE.
    Throughout his life's work, Malone drew inspiration from a select number of
    models that nourished his profound interest in the figure. In "Junkanoo
    Cosmic Dancer", Malone not only draws inspiration from the figure of the cowbellman
    - grounded in a shroud of Junkanoo garb - but also draws from the historic ritual
    of Junknaoo itself.
