The Recent Works of Peter Kilian showcases a dedication to artistic technique and practice. Plein-aire paintings dynamically interpret landscapes from the Badlands National Park, where Kilian was the Artist in Residence during his fall 2015 sabbatical. Kilian’s artist statement explains, “Many of the landscape pictures in this exhibit were created in response to my study and work there.” The figure and portraits drawn from life emphasize Kilian’s skilled foundation in drawing. The time required to complete the observational drawings vary from 30 minutes to several hours, completed with the following media: graphite, ink, charcoal, pastel, and watercolor.
The Recent Works of Peter Kilian will be on display from January 13 – February 28, 2020.
