KASARIAN DANE, FORMER CALVIN PROF. @ ROWLAND CONT. , IN ART FORUM

Our favorite polychromatic color field painter and former Calvin College painting professor, Kasarian Dane, is now teaching painting in upstate New York at St. Lawrence.

His most recent show at Rowland Contemporary, Color, received a positive review in Feb. 2007's issue of Art Forum.

"Dane has long been interested in the chromatic effects of various combinations of color. Painting on both aluminum and wood panel, he creates sometimes thick and sometimes thin bands of highly saturated color in both vertical and horizontal alignment. Both matte and glossy, these oil paintings construct formal relationships that reach beyond the surface and address superficiality and the politics of ambivalence through their insouciant qualities. As David Batchelor stated in his book "Chromophobia", color is "...a false addition to a surface and the truth beneath that surface.""
