P·P·O·W Gallery presents Bo Bartlett’s tenth solo exhibition with the gallery, Paintings of Home, presenting a new series of work that weaves together narratives of the artist’s childhood in Georgia with the present day. Throughout the exhibition there will be still lifes of everyday objects that become relics containing secret histories and tales. There are also portraits and scenes that play with memory and fantasy, blurring the line of real and imagined. All of these works are painted in the American realist tradition with echoes of Eakins, Homer and Wyeth. Bartlett has become recognized for his unique style but with each show continues to push the conventions of the pastoral American psyche.
