The Extravagant Vein

The first comprehensive survey of Moffett's investigations into art history, paint, and form, Donald Moffett: The Extravagant Vein provides viewers with insight into the artist's practice over the past twenty years. As a painter, Moffett extends the traditional two-dimensional frame, converting flat planes into highly textured reliefs in oil painting, or into intricate illuminations through video projection onto canvas. The subject matter of his paintings–from landscape and nature to politics and history–is poetic, provocative, and even at times humorous. Moffett has remained engaged with issues surrounding the presence of gays in historical and contemporary culture that resonate today, as well as more timeless questions of love, loss, alienation, and death.
