44 color lithographs of paintings by surrealist Rene Magritte are on display at the David Barnett Gallery for the first time. This is the first Rene Magritte show to ever be held in Wisconsin. These limited edition lithographs were produced in partnership with Magritte’s estate. Each printing plate was hand drawn, including up to 20 individual colors per print. The plates were destroyed after the printing was completed.

Exhibited will be select works from Nykoli Koslow’s practice from the past three years. Included will be life-sized paintings, a drawing installation, and multiple small ‘vernacular’ paintings. Large paintings, teetering between abstraction and representation, depict Queer deities and G-ds. A four-part drawing installation utilizes graphic mark-making on paper and the wall to express the twisting of ‘queered’ pathways. Also exhibited will be approximately 70 ‘vernacular’ paintings, spanning between 2inx2in – 4inx12in. These works are part of various ongoing series. Together, they work to create a Queer cosmology complete with its own visual language, mythos, and physical laws.
