(Painting is Dead Long Live Painting)
114 S. Grant
The Venue Fine Art & Gifts is pleased to host the latest exhibition of paintings by Paul Kane, entitled
A graduate of the art programs of both Yale and Indiana University, Paul Kane has used his talents and
distinct style to create a narrative that speaks to individualism, community, and mythical constructs that
can come from both.
The name of Kane’s show, PAINTINGISDEADLONGLIVEPAINTING, is meant as a claim that painting is
more meaningful today than ever. As Paul explains, the death of painting has been proclaimed by each
new generation for a hundred years or more, due to the rise of new technologies and new cultural ways.
How can painting be taken seriously when there is video art, installation art, conceptual art, computer
generated art, etc.?
This collection of paintings is so fortified, Curator Gabe Colman was made to exclaim "…the visually
hungry will be fed with this show!
