Rick Hintze and Allan Servoss

January 6th - February 19th

Allan Servoss has chosen colored pencil and casein as his preferred media to depict the quiet, serene landscapes of the driftless area. His work is wholly from his imagination, but based in his awareness of the region, lending a familiar aura to these illusory landscapes. Hintze employs carved line work and textural ochre slips sprayed over the exterior of his pors, as well as ash glazes that pool within the surface markings. This brings forth a mixture of pristine and ancient, the direct and subtle into his complex surface. These two artists share an affinity in atmosphere and tone, as well as an exacting craftsmanship.
