About

Douglas Safranek hand-mixes his egg tempera paint - a medium resurrected from the altar pieces of the Middle Ages. Safranek’s still lifes are built from delicate layers of this quick-drying mixture, producing a disorienting confluence of flatness and saturation. Paradox permeates this body of work: blaze-orange newts born in the spring scramble over a fall harvest, and scientific nomenclature tangles with regional slang, all within the context of unidentified, yet familiar interiors. Framed: 16h x 20.50w x 2.50d in
