Here at the gallery we're luxuriating in the cheeky, story-inspiring weirdness of Kyle Wilson's "LOVELY SINS," paintings that reinvent and reimagine thrift pieces. Many of Kyle's works feature marvelous, hideous beasts brightly invading trite landscapes. But he's also snuck in a few elements of quiet desperation — a small "For Sale" sign before a bucolic cottage, for example. This multi-layered quality has become a kind of aesthetic obsession for us. It's palimpsest time!
