Reality Check: Painting in the Exploded Field presents works from the Vicki and Kent Logan Collection that test both the limits and limitations of painting in a digital age. Infected by the ever-changing surfaces of advertising, album graphics, computer games, and animated cartoons, they engage in a high-energy semiotic sampling. Freely associating between abstraction and representation, the conscious and the unconscious, fantasy and reality, these works ultimately celebrate (and challenge) the persistent dilemma that is painting.

With an essay by Matthew Higgs, curator of the CCA Wattis Institute; artist biographies; and a list of works in the exhibition.
