Brian Kershisnik | Looking for Something: Selected Paintings

This event is free and open to the public and will take place at the bookshop.

Join Brian Kershisnik for a discussion and signing of his new art book, Looking for Something: Selected Paintings

This is a retrospective look at the work of the artist Brian Kershisnik through his first three prolific decades. Kershisnik is a puzzling and puzzled explorer, both a part of, and separate from his contemporaries. An enthusiastic and optimistic examiner of triumphs and tragedies, Kershisnik exposes the common in the hero and the heroic in the quotidian. He aspires more to the fantastic and rich human warmth of Giotto rather than the cold and distant impressive brilliance of the otherworldly high Renaissance. His life has been lovely, tragic, and bewildering, and his work explores that bewilderment with a mixture of melancholy and whimsy that feels extremely and encouragingly human--this is art that is meant to be lived with.
