When Christopher Filley called last week to say, "Come see the windows," this was not what I was expecting.
Forgive the glare, but Christopher has displayed an installation of televisions painted by Kansas City artist David Gant.
The televisions are functioning, though show only snow. They are always "on" and Chris tells me that the window at night is a knock-out.
Chris has had some of Gant's pieces for a while. I have noticed this series of portraits on cardboard before.
They are encaustics, which I understand to be a process that is a combination of wax and pigment. Gant did them when he was 20. There are twice again as many as this and they would be fantastic in a large grid.
The images were taken from obituary pictures.
You can see Gant's
or at Christopher's - 816/688-9974.
