The American Mural Project is a three-dimensional painting so large that a 
special building is being created for it. It is a celebration of American ingenuity 
and commitment to work. The project seeks to inspire, to invite collaboration, 
and to reveal to people of all ages the many contributions they can make to 
American culture.  It is intended as a tribute and a challenge.

Reynolds Fine Art
is pleased to present
Into the Interior: 
Paintings by
 Daniel Bohman 
Furniture Invitational 
August 30th-October 1st   
 Opening Reception: 
Friday, September 6th, 5-8pm

Reynolds Fine Art is pleased to present Into the Interior, an exhibition with the paintings of Daniel Bohman accompanied by various pieces of contemporary furniture.  

Daniel Bohman's paintings 'revel in a state of transition'. His work is both literal and abstract. Bohman's ability to use architecture and interior landscapes contrasted by his eccentric brush work muddle the ideals of space and perception. Bohman writes, 'I am particularly interested in how pattern can be used as a means of cohesion, but also, when placed in juxtaposition, stimulate complication and chaos. Ultimately I am interested in the picture plane as a transitory space- where objects come and go but the history of the action remains.'

Curated by Jeff Ostergren

The manifold meanings and multiple possibilities of the word "head" - figurative, psychological, metaphoric, sexual, structural, mechanical, geographic are to be put forth and explored in a space which itself has a curious formal resemblance to a head. In a library, no less, the content of which all derives from a head and goes into other heads. Heads produce things.   Ideas, products, experiences, moments, emotions.   Heads are where things come from.
