Art we love: Tidal Waves and Sea Bathers by Y.M. Whelan

Y.M.Whelan, Tidal Waves and Sea Dancers, 2012, acrylic on canvas, $1900.00

By the time you read this, Y.M. Whelan’s sparkling exhibition at the Fran Hill Show Room–called Book of Dreams: New Paintings–will probably be officially over, but gallerist Fran Hill will still be happy to show you the work, which will remain in the gallery for a while after the show.

Yvonne Whelan‘s new work–unfailing lyrical and yet uncompromisingly clean and organized as it always is–uses the intensely personal interior language of Jack Kerouac’s Book of Dreams (City Lights Books, 1961) as a leaping off point.  Critic Gary Michael Dault interviewed Yvonne Whelan recently at her exhibition about the new body of work.

The Fran Hill Show Room is at 285 Rushton Road at St. Clair Ave.
