Tomaselli at the Tang

       
Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, N.Y.  
  

An idiosyncratic collector, artist Fred Tomaselli mixes painting with pills, plants, and images cut from books and magazines to create multilayered collages (like Echo, Wow and Flutter, above). Drawing on sources from Renaissance frescoes to 1960s Minimalism, as well as decorative traditions such as quilts and mosaics, Tomaselli’s scenes reveal both troubling and enlightening details of our world. A survey of his work over 20 years will be on view at Skidmore’s Tang Museum from February 6 through June 6; see www.skidmore.edu/tang or call 518-580-8080. The show was previously at the Aspen Art Museum and will move to the Brooklyn Museum in late 2010.
