The Illusionist is on display at Studio Channels Islands until May 18, 2019. The exhibit features works by F. Scott Hess, Richard Macdonald, Sandy Yagi, Bryan Larson, Mark Gleason, Conor Walton, Pamela Wilson, Regina Jacobson, Guy Kinnear, Boris Vallejo, Julie Bell, Roger Dean, and Vince Natale.
Imagine a fantastic world! Anything is possible in it, anything can be made manifest. The difficulty is to share these things with other people – how do we describe unreal things?
The art in this show gives us a window into the imagined worlds of the artists who made them – and what amazing worlds they are – some are dreamlike, some are frightening, some are bizarre. All of them are painted and sculpted in a way that makes them believable.
This exhibition has been curated by Michael Pearce of Cal Lutheran University as part of The Representational Art Conference 2019. TRAC2019 is the premier international event focused on cutting-edge representational art in the 21st century – where imagination matters and the mind meets the hand.
Major funding for these programs is made possible by the City of
San Buenaventura, the County of Ventura and private and community donors.
