Ian Shults: You Should Smile, Darlin

Ian Shults: You Should Smile, Darlin . February 2-24, 2019

In this body of work, Shults focuses on the dynamic between the patriarchy and feminism. His figures are represented as idealized, revered, empowered, feared: an exploration into our current culture as a whole as well as the artist’s role as a white male figurative painter within it.
