Scottish artist Renny Tait certainly shaped our perceptions decadently with his latest exhibition that opened last October 16th at FLOWERS Gallery. The richly hued canvasses of building structures that are stark in its forms and with a controlled palette was indeed a feast for the eyes. A trio of lighthouses resembled stately chess pieces, a domed building with a clear blue sky evoked Magritte, and the bold geometrics are solid building blocks in this latest oeuvre. A mixture of the iconic recognizable structures given a matte but rich finish defined this a classicist dabbling in surrealism. Form informs the direction and this artist wanted to bring his viewers to what was once familiar but undoubtedly new.
