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.
