Mapping Pangea: Paintings and Sculpture by Doyle Gertjejansen 

"Pangea" was the name of a hypothetical super-continent that existed before the first dinosaurs roamed the Earth. It eventually succumbed to the laws of physics and broke up, just as our own coastline is breaking up. In Doyle Gertjejansen's work, Pangea is an imaginary place where anything is possible, but where everything is subject to the laws of aesthetics, color theory, composition, art history and virtuosity, as seen in the painting Lost Loop II (pictured). Gertjejansen says: "The obvious and the arbitrary, the awkward and elegant, contrived and authentic events live in the same world at the same time, and have equal consequences. ... I believe the power of painting is still rooted in sensual experience, and in its ability to be a direct record of the uniquely human practice of invention." — D. Eric Bookhardt

Through Dec. 30
