This exhibition showcases new work by John Westmark, a contemporary artist who weaves imaginative narratives into his large-scale paintings. Westmark explores the human figure in dynamic ways, through his innovative use of text and paper sewing patterns collaged on canvas. His paintings depict strong courageous women, some portrayed as stoic martyrs and others as warriors engaged in conflicts of rebellion.
