The Turning Time
new paintings by Michael Page
March 2 - April 12, 2008
Artist Reception: Thursday March 6, 6-9pm
The Turning Time
Michael Page returns to Varnish with his new series of oil paintings titled The Turning Time. Borrowing from classical allusions of good and evil, death, warriors from another land, mythological creatures and characters of Page's invention, each painting refers to the same concept at heart. The Turning Time series centers on a boy who receives power at an early age, then goes on to abuse it. As with each series, Page approaches every collection with a concept derived from today's world, but consciously moves away from any strict, linear narrative by breaking up the dialogue from one painting to the next. Page infuses each of his works with both serious issues and humor. In The Turning Time he employs his innovative Dorian Gray-esque aging of selected key figures that reappear across the series. Although beginning with a specific concept and painting with profound detail, the artist broadens his work by allowing for a balanced depth of viewer input into the source and intervening substance of the drama.
