COLLEGE ART GALLERY 1 PAST EXHIBITIONS

TONY SCHERMAN, PENSEES IMPENSABLES

Nov 10, 2005 - Jan 8, 2006
Curated by Ihor Holubizky.

Organized and circulated by the Kelowna Art Gallery. This project has been made possible in part through a grant from the Museums Assistance Program, Departmen

pensées impensables (unthinkable thoughts) has been devised as an installation and a metaphor based on two portrait paintings and a group of unframed works on paper. The portraits were done for different reasons but have affinities. One is of Anthony Hopkins' portrayal of Adolf Hitler in the 1981 television film The Bunker. The other portrait is from Scherman's Chasing Napoleon cycle of paintings. The exhibition title is derived from an earlier Napoleon painting with the phrase 'les pensées impensables' written along the bottom. Scherman's interest in painting the demons and heroes of history is the possibility of demythologizing them, but the works also invites interpretation, hence unthinkable thoughts.
