Houska Gallery Presents Nick Schleicher: “LIMBOO” & Martin Kahnle: “I Am Water”

Tonight, October 22nd Houska Gallery will be celebrating the opening of their newest exhibits with Nick Schleicher and Martin Kahnle. Stop by anytime from 5-8 pm to enjoy the show with us, drink some wine, and chat with the artists! The show runs through December 4, 2021. 

During the show they will have a limited number of signed and framed posters for sale, so come early if you don’t want to miss out on those.

In the series LIMBOOO, Schleicher presents a series of paintings with the indelible ability to soften harshness and bring levity to the overly serious. They make beautiful the roughness of life and loss, easing the pains of growing up. This series specifically investigates the parameters of permanence, finding comfort in the ambiguity of a life in flux.

In the series I Am Water, Kahnle explores the way that composition influences a visual narrative. He conducts the viewer through the space of the painting, using a hyper-vibrant color palette, the action of the paint, and brushwork. Rivers flow, trees sway and plants come alive, reminding us that we are alone in our inner and external worlds and part of a universal whole. Like nature itself, the paintings are simple and complex at the same time and offer a sense of peace, harmony, and quiet joy.
