This exhibition will focus on the contrast between the works of Memphis native John Torina and those of his daughter Clare Torina. John works primarily in landscape painting, depicting such diverse locales the banks of the Mississippi River, the Florida Everglades, and most recently New Zealand, on quiet, unpopulated canvases that pay homage to the Old Masters of landscape painting. In contrast, Clare’s art places a greater emphasis on figure. Yet like her father, Clare’s work, in both style and content, often openly references the work of her art historical predecessors. Her figure paintings and trans-media works draw parallels between ritualism, pictorial tradition, biological instinct, and social technology, addressing the range of emotions expressed during ritual in different cultures and religions compared with ordinary, universal acts.
