I am hard pressed to find one reason why these pieces are so wonderful. This mixture of painting, doodling, collage, and playfullness are gasping. Can’t get enough. Alexandra Levasseur

Julie Heffernan

Julie Heffernan (born 1956 in Peoria, Illinois) is an American painter whose work has been described by the writer Rebecca Solnit as “a new kind of history painting.” [1] Her imaginative landscapes feature such elements as exploding cities, castoff gods and garbage, and falling torrents of animals, meteors and gemstones.

David Cohen, art critic of The New York Sun, says of Heffernan’s art at a 2007 exhibition: “These paintings are a hybrid of genres and styles, mixing allegory, portraiture, history painting, and still life, while in title they are all presented as self portraits.”

If the mind of a saint could flow onto a canvas free flow, it would look like something like these pieces. A saint or a lunatic.

Ken Anbender

Ken Anbender’s work is wonderful. There is plenty of variety and his use of colour and form is fantastic. At first glance some of the collages seem like surreal paintings but on closer look you can see the cuts. This looks to me like mostly cut and paste. I always read the artist’s statement and come away a little bewildered. They sound so high minded. Mr. Anbender’s is no different. But his work is terrific stuff. And my mother who talked a bit like Stan Laurel used to say ‘if you can’t say something nice about a fellow, don’t say anything at all.’
